Nine Mile Point, FitzPatrick Nuclear Stations Sponsor STEM Literacy Program for Young Learners

Classroom-to-home program encourages STEM education, awareness and family time

Exelon Generation’s FitzPatrick and Nine Mile Point stations helped launch a STEM literacy program in in the Fulton, Oswego and Mexico school districts that promotes science, technology, engineering and math education to kindergarten through 3rd grade students.

The program, called the ABCs of STEM, provides teachers with classroom kits filled with everything they need to start an exciting classroom-to home curriculum that encourages STEM education, awareness and family time. Students and families will discover STEM together through nightly activities, including dinner discussion, story night, family game night and more. 

In a STEM student-of-the-week format, each child will record their STEM adventures and present their learnings to the class each week. There will be opportunities along the way for FitzPatrick and Nine Mile Point employees to participate in classroom activities.

Programs like the ABCs of STEM are one of many ways Exelon Generation is helping to promote STEM to children and schools in its surrounding communities. Strengthening education through new, innovative ideas is the right thing to do for our communities’ prosperity, and investing in STEM programs is an investment in the future workforce.
