Let’s Celebrate STEMtember!

Join IACMI and celebrate STEMtember! Back to school season is the perfect time to observe STEMtember: a month-long celebration of the importance of STEM education in building a better future for all.

Since launched in 2015, IACMI is proud to have furthered the abilities of nearly 10,000 K-12 STEM students in the world of composites materials and manufacturing.

This month, IACMI joins Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), U.S. Department of Energy to celebrate STEMtember all month long.

DOE says under the Biden-Harris administration’s climate goals, renewable energy will power a carbon-free economy by 2050 – but to realize that vision, we need to accelerate our development and deployment of clean energy technologies.

To expand the U.S. energy portfolio and ensure our continued leadership as innovators in the race for clean energy solutions, DOE says it must maintain focus and investment in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as a vital national priority.

Students and professionals from STEM fields are at the forefront of making a clean energy future a reality. An emerging generation of scientists, technicians, engineers, and mathematicians will take the reigns in combatting the climate crisis by advancing clean energy technologies and reimagining more sustainable ways of powering our modern society.

During September, DOE will use its communication platforms to shine a light on the importance of STEM in within the energy efficiency and renewable energy arenas. These include Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. So, keep an eye out for the #STEMtember hashtag to explore DOE’s content all month long.

The agency will continue to promote diversity in STEM by highlighting some of its workforce development initiatives, including collegiate competitions, and by celebrating its staff and their journeys within the STEM field.

Whether at home, through virtual learning, in the classroom, or on the job, STEM impacts you. Join DOE on social media for fun facts, experiments, virtual tours of National Labs, and spotlights of its staff working deep below us in geothermal mines or high up on wind turbines.
