CWU’s efforts to improve science, technology, education, and mathematics (STEM) education are among the topics to be discussed during a roundtable hosted by Congresswoman Kim Schrier, MD, who represent Washington’s 8th congressional district, which includes Kittitas and Chelan counties.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, September 3, at the Mercantile in Wenatchee. Lauren Hibbs, CWU executive director for Extended Learning, will represent the university at the event.

“Central is leading and sponsoring multiple initiatives with community partners to support STEM education both in and outside of the classroom,” Hibbs said.

Those partners include Wenatchee Valley College, Wenatchee Skills Center, Microsoft TechSpark, North Central Educational Service District in Wenatchee, and the Greater Wenatchee Area Technology Alliance.

CWU and those various entities are among the participants in the Apple STEM Network, an alliance of higher education, K-12, and community partners throughout Chelan and Douglas counties.

“We will highlight the ways we’ve worked together this past year and our future goals for leveraging a network of community partners for Central in the Chelan and Okanogan region,” Hibbs added.

Hibbs also serves on the Apple STEM Network’s Computer Science Pathway Articulation Steering Team, which just released its recommendations on steps it determined are essential to ensure that students are on-track for future careers in North Central Washington
