Steve Green, vice president of government affairs at Chevron, and Jack N. Gerard, president and CEO of the American Petroleum Institute, took to the stage at the Water E. Washington Convention Center on April 25 to talk about what industry and educators can do to prepare today’s students for STEM careers. Dean Kamen, founder of FIRST, an organization dedicated to fostering the development of science and technology leaders, joined the conference remotely to share the latest from the “FIRST Championship,” a robotics competition taking place in St. Louis. To that end, Green announced that Chevron will invest another $30 million to support STEM focused organizations bringing their total financial support to this endeavor to $130 million since 2011. With the $30 million, Chevron plans to partner with Achieve, The Fab Foundation, the National Academy of Engineering and Project Lead the Way.
