Career Exploration

Oregon Envirothon’s program is designed to give students exposure to an array of natural sciences. It is our goal that students have the opportunity to explore a variety of career paths that they may pursue after high school.

One of the most valuable benefits that Oregon Envirothon offers is the opportunity to network with natural science professionals. Students can request a job shadow, learn about internship opportunities, ask about career qualifications, and more.

In addition, all students gain valuable skills and memories when participating with Oregon Envirothon. In fact, most of our students go on to excel in all kinds of fields, including: healthcare, engineering, business, teaching, manufacturing, public safety, and more. Students do not need an exclusive interest in environmental sciences to learn, grow, and have fun at Oregon Envirothon.
