Manufacturers invest heavily in STEM education to fight skills gap

The AP (10/22) reports that Chevron is spending $20 million on the launch of a STEM-focused program dubbed the Appalachia Partnership Initiative. The program is designed to “improve schools and workforce development in 27 counties in southwestern Pennsylvania, northern West Virginia and eastern Ohio.”

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (10/21) reports that the project will fund scholarships for community college programs and pay for energy labs in two PA school districts that will have graduate student staff from Carnegie Mellon University. Chevron Appalachia president Nigel Hearne explained, “An educated and skilled workforce leads to economic success.”
