Rockhurst to Host STEM Conference

In March 2017, Rockhurst High School became just the 80th school in the nation, and the first in Missouri or Kansas, to earn the AdvancED STEM Certification.

Less than a year later, Rockhurst is hosting an AdvancED-sponsored STEM Conference to help communicate with educators the best practices that their schools can implement for their students.  The seminar, called the "AdvancED Missouri Join the Journey: Spotlighting STEM Conference," will run from March 13-14, during Rockhurst's Spring Break.

The conference will share Rockhurst's story, detail how community resources can be utilized, and teach how education is changing on a national level.

According to Greg Owsley '00, STEAM Director at Rockhurst, educators today are challenged with figuring out the ways in which schools need to respond to the ever-changing world to best support today's students.  The hope is that participants will come away from this conference with tangible action items that they can implement within their respective school community.  Additionally, Rockhurst believes the conference will spread awareness to the questions being asked by educators around the world and some of the ways different schools have responded.

"Being asked to host a STEM Conference is humbling; AdvancED was impressed with how high functioning we are as a school," said Owsley.  "Their request that we host a conference and share our way of proceeding as a school is affirming to the incredible work of my colleagues."
