In February, Exelon Generation's R.E. Ginna Nuclear Power Plant coordinated an afterschool outreach program for about 30 Big Brother Big Sister elementary students and their high school mentors. Employees designed and staffed several educational science, technology, education and math (STEM) activities, following a "minute to win it" format, complete with prizes. Plant employees work with this group of students on several afterschool projects throughout each academic year.
Tomorrow's energy jobs demand we engage students in strengthening science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, opening doors to energy industry careers. According to the National Center for College and Career Transitions, about 20 percent of careers - in fact, many of the fastest growing ones - require proficiency in STEM.
