Exelon Generation has made a generous donation of $4,000 to Everett High School for its science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs and organizations.

Exelon believes that providing funding for STEM is an investment in our future workforce and it strengthens education through new, innovative ideas. Everett High School (EHS) shares these beliefs and has greatly expanded its STEM programming in recent years.

Everett Public Schools Curriculum Director Janice Gauthier talks to Exelon Generation Regional Communications Manager Mark Rodgers about Everett High School’s STEM curriculum.

 

Of particular popularity has been EHS’s involvement in the Student Racing Challenge (SRC), the flagship series in the National STEM League (NSL). Through it, students own a motorsports business featuring a remote-control car. The ultimate goal is to engineer performance: personal performance, team performance and, of course, race performance. Last spring, the EHS team “The Crimson Bolt” captured first place in the Ten80 Education Student Racing Challenge National Finals in upstate New York.

“Exelon Generation is pleased to support the great work of the Everett Public Schools in attaining a high level of student achievement that is particularly impressive for an urban school district,” said from Mark Rodgers, regional communications manager, Exelon Generation. “Everett High School’s STEM Academy is an example of the district’s commitment to leadership in innovation and in providing students with expanded curricular opportunities.”

While making the check presentation, Mr. Rodgers had the chance to spend time in classrooms, visiting with students who have a passion for STEM subjects.

“I was so impressed with the energy, interest, and enthusiasm I found among the students and teachers in the high school engineering class I visited for the problem-solving work they were engaged in,” Rodgers said.
