Chevron is proud to partner with Project Lead the Way to help provide access to engineering curriculum to 100,000 students across the U.S.
Chevron partners with The Fab Foundation to bring fabrication labs (Fab Labs) to areas where Chevron operates. The hands-on activities found in Fab Labs include laser cutters, machinery for creating circuit boards and precision parts, a suite of programming tools and more. Chevron-sponsored Fab Labs are located in Bakersfield, Richmond, and Santa Clara, CA; Pittsburgh and Grindstone, PA; New Orleans, LA; Odessa, TX and Washington, D.C. The Fab Labs are open both to students and to the community.
National Academy of Engineering
With Chevron’s support, the National Academy of Engineering launched a new website, LinkEngineering (www.linkengineering.org), intended to help PreK-12 educators in the United States implement engineering education in classrooms and out-of-school settings. LinkEngineering provides the first-ever platform for K-12 teachers and informal educators to work and learn as a community toward the goal of improving the reach and quality of U.S. pre-college engineering.
The mission of Techbridge is to inspire girls to discover a passion for science, technology, engineering and math through hands-on learning. They make circuits, design buildings, work with mentors, and much more through Techbridge’s extracurricular programs and family resources. Chevron is proud to support Techbridge to empower the next generation of female innovators and leaders.
Chevron also supports STEM education by investing in teacher training programs designed to strengthen faculty. Chevron is proud to partner with California State University and provide support to its STEM Teacher and Researcher (STAR) Program, a recognized innovation in teacher preparation.
