Energy Education

STEM & Energy Education in North Carolina

The Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) at UNC Charlotte was formed in response to the need from industry to supply to highly trained engineers qualified to meet the demands of the energy industry – through traditional and continuing education, and provide sustainable support the Carolina energy industry by increasing capacity and support for applied research. EPIC hopes to extend its reach by getting involved with energy and STEM education for grades k-12. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs throughout primary and secondary schooling is essential to developing a strong foundation for students to build upon in order to succeed in energy and engineering fields. Our goal is to promote STEM and energy education programs throughout North Carolina and to increase the interest of students grades k-12 in STEM related majors and careers.
