The U.S. DOE's Geothermal Technologies Office sets the spotlight on STEM student participants in the 2021 Geothermal Collegiate Competition.

The Geothermal Technologies Office (GTO) has shared a celebratory post interviewing student participants in the 2021 Geothermal Collegiate Competition.

The GTO strongly believes in energizing and inspiring students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). GTO joins the Administration’s commitment to building a strong, diverse workforce and creating new opportunities for success in research and development.

Now as we all head back to school this September, GTO funds and oversees prize competitions to engage with college student teams, like the Geothermal Collegiate Competition (GCC). Through the GCC, hosted annually through the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), students gain experience in developing real-world energy plans and collaborating with leaders in their communities. The 2022 GCC just launched; to learn how to get engaged in this year’s competition visit the 2022 GCC Competition website and watch the informational webinar.

If you don’t see yourself participating, we encourage you to read on! GTO reached out to participants of the 2021 GCC to learn about the diverse backgrounds and experiences that are leading them to a future in STEM.

GTO is proud to showcase these amazing students and the wonderful personalities, experiences, and stories that they bring to STEM.
