Central Ohio STEM Action Center

What is the OSLN Central Ohio STEM Action Center?

The OSLN Central Ohio STEM Action Center is the nuclei of regional STEM Activity. We facilitate partnerships that amplify and accelerate existing STEM programs within the region.  We share resources with regional STEM collaborators, including Ohio’s 26 K-8 STEM Programs of Excellence, and facilitate partnerships with local entities representing K-12, higher education, community and business. Each hub leverages these relationships to connect and spread STEM efforts throughout its region.

  • Design, launch and sustain a STEM platform school.
  • Spread the positive impact of the school to the broader region and state.
  • Capture, amplify and accelerate related STEM research and development.
  • Advance a coherent STEM education and economic development strategy.

Anyone from educational institutions, business, government entities, community organizations and the media can become involved with the OSLN Central Ohio STEM Action Center and STEM education.

The PAST Foundation powers the OSLN Central Ohio STEM Action Center.

OSLN Announces their 2021-2022 Statewide Design Challenge!

Ohio teachers and students – OSLN #STEMbuildsOhio Design & Entrepreneurship Challenge.

This year’s challenge invites students to consider how they can improve their school, community, or the world around them by reimagining an existing physical space, system, product, or service and creating something more equitable, accessible, or efficient.

The topic is infrastructure and students have the ability to make independent  choices about how they approach their project. For more information about the OSLN Design Challenge, please visit their website:
