Now is the time to apply for the week-long Foundation for Water & Energy Education (FWEE) Hydropower and STEM Career Academy at Chelan PUD’s Rocky Reach Dam in Wenatchee, WA, June 19-23.
STEM challenges will include exploring the physics of producing hydropower, racing solar cars, and flying drones.
The Academy is open to students throughout the Northwest with a GPA of 2.5 or better. Over the course of the week, educational pathways will unfold as students connect career options to four-year college, community college and/or apprenticeship options that best suit their interests.
“Here in central Washington, we are in the heart of the Northwest hydropower industry. There are thousands of exciting and dynamic jobs that can lead to high-paying and rewarding careers for area students to consider. The FWEE STEM Academy provides a wonderful opportunity for students to see what hydro has to offer,” said Chuck Allen, Grant County PUD.
