CEA Welcomes CSTEM as New Academic Partner and Affiliate Member
Culminates Year-Long Collaboration in Developing & Launching
First Ever Energy Day Festival
HOUSTON – Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) is pleased to welcome CSTEM as its newest affiliate member.
Since 2002, CSTEM has operated as a non-profit organization providing services to teachers and students in areas of communication, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (CSTEM). Through action research, CSTEM has developed a program that support and service Pre K-12 pipeline teams, enriching the teaching and learning process for both teachers and students around the world. Students find success with STEM, develop leadership skills, learn how to work successfully on a team, explore and discover career opportunities in STEM, and experience learning outside of their school and home community.
“CSTEM is so pleased to work with CEA to further educational and workforce opportunities for young people,” said CSTEM founder and CEO, Dr. Reagan Flowers. “The annual international CSTEM Challenge, and CEA’s Energy Day are just two examples of effective collaborative partnerships of two organizations working together to deliver positive messages about technology, science and education to students. CEA’s mission of expanding the dialogue around our nation needs for every form of energy to meet the demands of the future, affords students everywhere so many exciting opportunities to learn and experience energy in all its forms. CSTEM is committed to the continued development of our programs to engage students in STEM and creating opportunities that build better futures. By joining CEA, CSTEM hopes to be able to reach even more students in an attempt to increase the interest rate amongst students in STEM related fields. Together CSTEM and CEA can bolster educational opportunities for America’s youth.”
“Consumer Energy Alliance has been very proud to partner with CSTEM over much of 2011 to help make Houston’s Energy Day a reality and amplify all of CSTEM good work bringing science and energy-related education to students throughout Texas,” said CEA president David Holt. “Educating young people on the role energy plays in their daily lives is a fundamental function for CEA. CEA is proud of our collaboration with CSTEM and looks forward to doing even more together to provide students with credible energy information and activities that show students how STEM fields can become rewarding careers.”
