Inspiring and preparing students to enter tomorrow's energy workforce is critical to the Department of Energy's mission.

Today’s students are tomorrow’s energy workforce, a fact that all government leaders, CEOs, and major utility industries know well. The Energy Department’s initiatives on engaging students in energy literacy, hands-on energy experience, energy entrepreneurship, and research will be drivers of the future of energy as we prepare and inspire new talent in the energy sector.

Join our webinar on Friday, December 13, as we share information about game changing student programs in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics and energy literacy here at the Department and across the country at our National Laboratories.

Register for the webinar today and mark your calendar.

From 3pm-5pm EST, the webinar will take educators, administrators, and others interested in learning more about the Department of Energy’s efforts in increasing opportunities for colleges, universities and their students in energy.

The webinar will show how the Energy 101 Framework has been used in the development of multidisciplinary undergraduate level fundamental courses in energy with examples and speakers from pilot institutions, including the University of Maryland’s own  Energy 101 course.

The webinar will also discuss the broader goals of increasing involvement of underrepresented groups in other programs including the newly announced Minorities in Energy Initiative, and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy’s Small Business Innovation Research program, and student competitions like the Clean Energy Business Plan Competition.
