Fluor-BWXT President and CEO
More than 14,000 students have attended Science Alliance over the years. Each year the program grows, providing new opportunities for students to discover the possibilities a future in science can provide.
During the event, students travel through stations in small groups, participating in hands-on activities, and talking to industry professionals and various colleges and universities about their future.
Subject matter experts in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) provide games, activities and education to engage students and share opportunities for students to grow.
Universities such as The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Marshall University, Shawnee State University, University of Rio Grande, Hocking College, Southern State Community College, Ohio Christian University, Morehead State University, Marietta College and more, participate each year.
Several of the area’s largest employers in our region also participate, including Kenworth Trucking, General Electric, General Mills and the Ohio State Highway Patrol.
The event is held in the fall each year. Schools are contacted at the end of the school year to save the date for the event and are again contacted at the beginning of the school year with more details.
Schools who are interested in Science Alliance can email Deneen Garner, lead community relations specialist at Fluor-BWXT at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 740.897.2609 to get more information.
We look forward to seeing you in the fall.
Thank you to everyone who participated in this year's Department of Energy Science Alliance!
