Duke Energy Teams up With Clemson University to Bring Mobile Engineering Lab to SC Middle School Students


Duke Energy and Clemson University are hitting the road this summer behind the wheel of the Explore Mobile Lab, an innovative approach to educating middle school students across the Palmetto State about the critical and growing field of engineering. The program hopes to educate and engage young scientists and engineers who will be the future workforce for industries, such as electric utilities, that will need those skills to power communities in the 21st century. The mobile STEM lab is unique to South Carolina and was made possible by a $400,000 gift from Duke Energy.
