The U.S. Department of Energy has selected four research projects that will provide educational and research training opportunities for minority students while advancing key technical areas in fossil fuel utilization.
Early engagement with science is what propels students into careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). STEM education increases scientific literacy, creates critical thinkers, and provides the tools for the next generation of innovators to take their place in the world.
NETL is committed to advancing new methods and technologies for efficient, low-cost, environmentally benign energy production. As part of this commitment, the laboratory works hand in hand with teachers of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to provide them with energy-related, content-rich STEM materials. Students who are excited in the STEM classroom today may pursue careers that help them find solutions to tomorrow’s energy challenges.
