STEM Center, Sanford Health to collaborate

WEST FARGO – A group of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Center and West Fargo High School staff members will gather with members from the Sanford Health Office of Continuous Improvement on Monday for a day of learning and collaboration.

The community partnership brings forward the idea that two traditional institutions – health care and education – can work together to collaborate and reach real improvement.

The group will work to identify waste in systems, processes and workflows, develop standard work and create an action plan for integrating the concepts learned into the classroom.

Participants will also network and brainstorm future partnerships, projects, internships and experiences that would be beneficial for students and Sanford Health. The West Fargo STEM Center is an educational program that works towards making education relevant to the real world.

Since its inception in 2009, the STEM program has continued to expand and now houses approximately 250 students in sixth through eighth grades.
