AREVA Inc.: What We Did This Summer: STEM Outreach in Charlotte

This is a guest blog post from AREVA, Inc. that originally appeared on us.arevablog.com

September 2, 2014 | AREVA Inc. employees at our North American headquarters in Charlotte, N.C. have been busy this summer sharing their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers with local students, educators and their own families.
 
Igniting interest in and providing opportunities to develop STEM career paths is critical to the success of AREVA and the energy industry. Right now:
  • 40 percent of workers in the nuclear industry are eligible to retire
  • Less than 16 percent of bachelor degrees awarded are in STEM fields
  • Nationwide, 75 million Baby Boomers are nearing retirement
  • Only 30 million Gen X-ers are available to fill the open roles when Baby Boomers leave the workforce
AREVA, in Charlotte and beyond, is committed to securing the future of safe, clean and reliable nuclear energy by developing a pipeline of talent through STEM outreach.
 
July: Scholarships and presentations to Project Scientist
In July, AREVA Inc. sponsored three students for the Project Scientist summer camp geared toward girls ages 4-16. As a “STEM SuperStar,” Mechanical Engineer Rebecca Jetton spoke to two different groups of campers about nuclear power and how nuclear fission is used to produce electricity.
 
“It was rewarding to see young girls excited to learn more about the world around them and how things work,” said Rebecca. “I was impressed that even at a young age, the girls were truly interested in soaking up as much information as possible. I was especially fascinated by the intelligent questions that they asked. This camp is a great opportunity for them to have fun with hands on activities and interact with role models from a variety of industries while learning about science and engineering.”
 
Aug. 4 and 6: Teachers go back to school with STEMersion 2014
AREVA welcomed nearly 40 STEM teachers to its North American headquarters as part of STEMersion 2014. The two-day AREVA portion of the STEMersion professional development program included teachers from 29 middle and high schools in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools system. These teachers visited AREVA offices in Charlotte on Aug. 4 and Aug. 6 to learn from AREVA senior executives, hiring managers, and employees about STEM influence on the company’s day-to-day operations.

Aug. 14: STEM in the Family: AREVA Women in Nuclear organize “Bring Your Girls to Work” Day
The AREVA Charlotte Women in Nuclear (WIN) hosted nearly 25 girls in grades 2nd – 9th for the first “Bring Your Girls to Work Day” at the AREVA North American headquarters.. Employees were invited to bring their daughters, granddaughters, nieces, and sisters to participate in creative and challenging activities set to pique the girls’ interest in STEM subjects and careers.
WIN, with the support of the AREVA Charlotte North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN), led the girls in activities focused on art, math, observation and critical thinking, team building, innovation, and self-confidence. The organizations recognize the importance of engaging K-12 students in STEM subjects and demonstrating how these core competencies translate from the classroom into real-world applications and careers.
 
“STEM is vital to the success of our children and our company and whenever we can, we like to take the opportunity to get students excited about these subjects in fun and creative ways,” said Kathy Williams, chief financial officer at AREVA Inc. “We rely on organizations like WIN and NAYGN to focus especially on STEM outreach to young girls who, statistically, tend to lose interest in these subjects by age 8.”
 
Jennifer, a 5th grader and the daughter of one of our employees, shared some of her thoughts about the day stating, “I especially liked the LEGO® game. It was not only fun but taught me if you put things in order you can get things done faster. I [also] liked meeting new people and making new friends.”
 
In addition to our outreach activities in Charlotte, the Sweet Briar College “Explore Engineering” program visited our Technical Training Center in Lynchburg, Va., in July.

AZ 'Get Into Energy' Consortium Launches Cybersecurity Degree Information Technology and Power Systems Security Program Offered at Estrella Mountain Community College

This is a PRWEB press release from Estrella Mountain Community College

The Arizona Sun Corridor-Get Into Energy Consortium (ASC-GIEC), which received a $13.5 million Department of Labor (DOL) grant to advance the training and development of a workforce pipeline for the energy industry, is creating an energy-related cybersecurity program through Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC), the consortium’s lead institution.

Avondale, AZ (PRWEB) August 30, 2014 | The demand is increasing for highly trained technicians to protect against and minimize threats to cybersecurity. To help reduce this critical workforce shortage, the Arizona Sun Corridor-Get Into Energy Consortium (ASC-GIEC), which received a $13.5 million Department of Labor (DOL) grant to advance the training and development of a workforce pipeline for the energy industry, is creating an energy-related cybersecurity program through Estrella Mountain Community College (EMCC), the consortium’s lead institution.

This fall 2014 semester, the consortium launched its new Information Technology and Power Systems Security (IT-PSS) program, with courses offered at EMCC in Avondale. The program will uniquely focus on the power and energy industry, offering nationally recognized curriculum and credentials leading to an associate of applied science (A.A.S.) degree and career readiness pathway.
 
The curriculum is founded on the principles of the DOL, Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA) Cybersecurity Competency Model, which was modified by the consortium with input from an industry advisory council. As students progress through the pathway, their coursework will prepare them to challenge a variety of IT security industry certification exams.
 
Dr. Rufus Glasper, Chancellor of the Maricopa Community College District, is a member of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Academic Advisory Council Subcommittee on Cybersecurity, a federal group that has vetted the college’s new IT career pathway.
 
“The EMCC program has created a career preparedness track that could set a new standard for community college education models, similar to the success of the ASC-GIEC technician programs,” said Dr. Glasper.
 
The advisory council supporting the program is comprised of industry representatives from across the cybersecurity sector, including FBI Cyber Operations Unit (Phoenix Field Office), Association for Computing Machinery, Arizona Counter Terrorism Intelligence Center, Arizona Public Service, Palo Verde Nuclear Generating Station, Arizona Department of Homeland Security, Arizona Cyber Threat Response Alliance, Arizona InfraGard and American Express.
 
Michael Echols, Chief Information Security Officer for Maricopa County, played a major role in the development of the curriculum, and is an adjunct faculty member at EMCC. According to Echols, malware is one of several risks to the nation’s power grid and it is estimated that 75 percent of malware is not initially detected by traditional signature-based technologies.
 
“This represents a serious risk to the grid, because malware is often used to bypass firewalls and network-based controls, which may result in unauthorized access to IT power systems,” said Echols. “Students in this program can expect to gain an understanding of these risks and how they can be reduced through the implementation of security controls.”
 
According to Dr. Clay Goodman, Vice President of Occupational Education at EMCC and Director of the ASC-GIEC, the program began as a request from the industry partners.
 
“The program was created as a career pathway to expand employment opportunities across multiple industries with common, stackable credentials.” said Goodman. “It is a perfect complement to EMCC’s Power Plant Technology degree, and offers a lot of potential for people of all backgrounds, including young and re-careering students.”
 
EMCC’s energy and cybersecurity programs will continue to develop as a recent beneficiary of the Arizona STEM legislation ARS 15-1464, providing $1.4 million to Maricopa Community College STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs. The $400,000 allocated to EMCC will help purchase equipment and provide virtual learning spaces for the new courses.
 
The IT-PSS program will be featured at the first annual Arizona Get Into Energy Education Expo on October 24 and 25 at the Arizona Science Center in downtown Phoenix. The Expo will be a fun, interactive event highlighting the careers available in energy and related industries. On October 24, the event will be limited to registered high schools from across the state, but October 25 will be free and open to the public from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
 
The Saturday event will invite veterans, Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA)-eligible job seekers, and all career-transitioning adults to consider the opportunities in these growing fields offer. Additional event information can be found at az.getintoenergy.com/expo
 
Estrella Mountain Community College offers academic courses leading to associate degrees, university transfer, certificates and short-term job training to more than 14,000 students annually. The flagship campus is located on Thomas and Dysart Roads in Avondale and is home to the SouthWest Skill Center. The satellite campus, EMCC’s Buckeye Educational Center, is located in downtown Buckeye. Estrella Mountain is one of ten colleges in the Maricopa County Community College District, one of the largest community college districts in the nation.

Registration Opens for 2014-2015 Future City Competition

This is a press release from Carnegie Science Center and DiscoverE

Carnegie Science Center Invites Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Graders To Explore Urban Agriculture

Pittsburgh, Aug. 29, 2014 | Carnegie Science Center is now accepting registrations for middle-school teams to compete in the 2014-2015 Future City® Competition, a program of DiscoverE. Future City is a national, project-based learning experience in which students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade imagine, design, and build cities of the future. For the region comprising western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, Carnegie Science Center manages the competition as a program of its Chevron Center for STEM Education and Career Development.
 
Each year, the competition asks the students to focus on a theme. This year’s theme, Feeding Future Cities, encourages students to explore today’s urban agriculture – from aeroponic systems for rooftop farms to recycled gray water to the sustainability-driven farm-to-table movement – and to develop a futuristic solution to growing crops within the confines of their city. Many experts now predict that, in the coming decades, the Earth’s arable land will no longer be sufficient to produce enough food for the planet’s growing population. At the same time, nearly all of the world’s population growth between now and 2030 will be concentrated in urban areas. With these two critical concerns converging, farming in and around cities will be essential to feeding the world’s population. The urban agriculture movement is one of the most important solutions to the urgent effort to ensure that the global community has access to fresh, affordable and healthy food.
 
Working in a team with an educator and engineer mentor, students are challenged to design a virtual city using SimCity™ software. They will research today’s urban farms and write an essay describing their solution to feeding their citizens. Students then will bring their ideas to life by building a tabletop scale model of their city using recycled materials on a budget of $100 or less and will write a brief narrative promoting their city. The Pittsburgh regional teams will present their ideas before judges at Carnegie Music Hall in Oakland on Saturday, Jan. 17, 2015. The winner will compete with winners of 36 other regional competitions at the National Finals in Washington, DC, in February. Major funding for the National Finals comes from Shell Oil Company, Bentley Systems and Bechtel Corporation.
 
“It’s always exciting to see how young kids envision the future,” said Lisa Kosick, who coordinates Carnegie Science Center’s regional competition. “Teachers always tell us that the students learn so much about teamwork and problem-solving, and they get so absorbed in their months-long projects. Students tell us they have a lot of fun! We think that Future City is a fantastic way to introduce kids to some pretty sophisticated engineering concepts, and to get them thinking about possible careers in engineering and other STEM fields.” Last school year, 40 schools participated, and even more participants are anticipated for the upcoming competition.
 
Nationally, more than 40,000 students, representing 1,350 schools, take part each year in the Future City® Competition. The deadline for schools to register is October 15, 2014. Schools may register today or learn more at www.futurecity.org. Students, teachers, and prospective volunteers are urged to visit the Facebook page for more information and updates on the Future City® Competition.
