The mission of the Frontier STEM Hub is to support, develop, and promote quality STEM education for all students in Malheur County to ensure our youth are on track for college and career readiness resulting in long-term economic growth and increased competitive and creative capacity for our region.
We envision STEM education that inspires and empowers all learners to develop knowledge, skills and mindsets necessary to adapt and contribute to and succeed in an increasingly complex and technologically rich society, building our shared prosperity and economic vitality.
To achieve its mission, Frontier STEM Hub has identified the following four goals:
Support and promote formal and informal STEM-learning opportunities, increasing exposure and interest of P20 students to increase proficiency, interest, and attainment of post-secondary credentials and degrees in STEM and CTE
Continuously improve the effectiveness of STEM education through quality professional development
Strengthen industry and Career Technical Education (CTE) partnerships that will increase graduation rates with students who are prepared and on track to pursue college and career pathways
Sustain an equity committee to ensure that the initiatives of the Frontier STEM Hub incorporate and adopt the principles of Oregon’s Equity Lens, ensuring quality, culturally-responsive educational opportunities for all students of Malheur County
