2017 North Carolina Chapter of the AABE Youth Energy Academy
The Youth Energy Academy is hosted by the North Carolina (N.C.) Chapter of the American Association of Blacks in Energy (AABE). The N.C. Chapter of the AABE is excited to host the one-day event from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in Charlotte, N.C., on Saturday, Oct. 14, 2017.
The N.C. Chapter of the AABE Youth Energy Academy: Powering a Bright Future focuses on providing hands-on activities for high school students (grades 9-12) to increase their knowledge about the energy industry and new technology. Students will learn about careers, jobs and occupational training requirements for different segments of the energy industry. Students will also learn the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) as they pursue their college education and future careers. In addition, students will have the opportunity to win prizes, and each student will receive a certificate of completion.
Registration information will be sent out in the near future. We look forward to seeing you and your students on Oct. 21, 2017. If you have questions about the event, please contact Shanda Hardin at Shanda.Hardin@duke-energy.com or 980-373-7111.
