Valley Catholic Middle School to Host Regional STEM Conference

Beaverton, Ore., - Valley Catholic Middle School, in partnership with Cognia, will be hosting a regional STEM conference for educators, parents, and community members and others interested in the future of STEM education. The “Think Future: STEM Institute” regional STEM conference takes place on Friday, January 31, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Valley Catholic Middle School, 4420 SW St. Mary’s Drive in Beaverton. 

The conference will include presenters and attendees from the Pacific Northwest region, which includes Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Colorado. Cognia, the conference partner, formerly known as AdvancED, provides schools with accreditation and certification, assessments, and professional consulting. In December 2018, Valley Catholic Middle School became the first school in the Pacific Northwest to earn STEM certification from Cognia.

Jennifer Gfroerer, Valley Catholic Middle School principal and doctoral candidate in neuroeducation at University of Portland said, “Those attending the conference will learn how neuroscience is helping educators understand ways to reach each individual student through STEM education, including methods to integrate diversity, equity, and inclusion into their educational practices.” 

Registration for the Think Future: STEM Institute is available on this link
