STEM & Energy Education in North Carolina
The Energy Production and Infrastructure Center (EPIC) at UNC Charlotte was formed in response to the request from industry to supply to highly trained engineers qualified to meet the demands of the energy industry. EPIC works 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 are 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.
