|Organization:||Utah Energy & Minerals Education Initiative|
|Summary:||The Utah Energy & Minerals Education Initiative was launched in 2015 by the Governor’s Office of Energy Development (OED) and a variety of partner agencies, industry associations and other interested parties, all of whom shared the goal of advancing the public’s understanding of energy production and use. By educating young people and adults about the full range of energy resources, concepts and opportunities, our partners hope to elevate the energy discussion in the public sphere, and encourage young people to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) courses of study and careers. To date, the Initiative has included K-12 curriculum development, scholarships for high school students, research funding and a Utah Energy & Minerals Days event hosted in conjunction with the annual Utah STEM Fest. As OED and its partners continue to make progress, expanding workforce development activities, public forums, and other forms of outreach and advocacy, this site will be a resource for all content, notices and news related to our education initiatives.|
