The mission of NETL’s Education Program is to inspire and train the next generation of energy researchers, engineers and scientists, who will one day carry the charge of leading the United States to an energy-independent future. As energy ambassadors to our youth, we see it as our responsibility to encourage students to get excited about science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) at an early age.

What is STEM Rising?
STEM Rising is a U.S. Department of Energy call to inspire lifelong success through science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Visit their website here!

We accomplish this by being a proactive developer and supporter of education initiatives at all levels. Our commitment to education is demonstrated through research participation, workshops, instructional materials, tours, community outreach, and special events.

As the U.S. Department of Energy’s lead laboratory for the Office of Fossil Energy, we also strive to educate teachers and students about the importance of fossil energy and its value in supplying America with over 85% of its energy.[1]
