What is “The CO•” ?

The CO• is a campus-community partnership that advocates for the value of hands-on learning for people of all ages, backgrounds, “day jobs”, and communities. Our partnership includes units from Oregon State University and community groups from the City of Corvallis and throughout the Willamette Valley.
In Beaver Nation, we make things. We learn by doing, and at The CO• we’re bringing together makers from across campus, Corvallis, and the whole State of Oregon to celebrate and share their methods for hands-on learning. From the creative problem solving skills so crucial to education in the 21st century to the benefits of quick prototyping tools needed to drive an innovative economy, every discipline and every individual has something to learn and something to teach.
To tinker is to study. To fail is to be human. To make is to empower.
