We’re investing in future innovators with the STEM Careers Coalition

Much of what we do to generate electricity across North America is powered by the skills and expertise of STEM-educated employees. The need for people skilled in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics is increasing exponentially, and growing interest in STEM for kids today is paramount for the success of our industry tomorrow.  This starts with ensuring students have equitable access to engaging resources that build foundational STEM knowledge and develop the critical skills they need for their future careers, which is why our partner Discovery Education launched the  STEM Careers Coalition™, connecting STEM industries and classrooms at an unprecedented scale.

This is a first-of-its-kind national STEM initiative powered by corporate and non-profit leaders and anchored in schools by Discovery Education. This program connects STEM from Kindergarten to Careers by providing problem-solving tools for tomorrow’s changemakers. As a proud Content Partner since 2021, we’re supporting them in expanding their student impact as they share existing inspirational and high-quality content and provide subject matter expertise to their partners and users in Discovery Education’s broad education ecosystem.

Since its launch in 2019, this initiative has reached 6.7 million teachers and students with equitable access to STEM resources and career connections. We’re excited to be a STEM Careers CoalitionTM partner and look forward to helping to prepare the next generation of STEM solution seekers!
