iMAGINE Upstate announced Duke Energy as a presenting partner for the upcoming festival and weeklong series of crowdsourced science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) events.
Through a grant from the Duke Energy Foundation, Duke Energy will help support educational programs.
In conjunction with the partnership, iMAGINE Upstate and Duke Energy also announced a series of free educational events during the week of iMAGINE Upstate called “ENERGIZE Your Mind.”
These events are to be held at the World of Energy education center at the Oconee Nuclear Station in Seneca, S.C. The education center will play host to a series of daily STEM activities such as hands-on workshops and interactive exhibits designed to foster student development in science and energy.
“Every dollar we contribute to education is an investment in the future of the Upstate,” said Clark Gillespy, Duke Energy’s president for South Carolina. “Supporting effective education programs and initiatives that emphasize STEM is a critical focus for Duke Energy.”
