It’s clear to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE), that STEM—the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics—helps shape our world and solve our most complex problems. But tackling many of our biggest challenges will take years—and that’s where America’s students come in.

Students: You represent the next generation of STEM experts. You will be leaders in your field and work at the forefront of breakthroughs that change the world.

Each STEM field serves as a building block for accomplishing the DOE mission. So this month, we’re celebrating #STEMtember to explore some of the many career possibilities STEM has to offer.

Every week in September, we’ll spotlight a different aspect of STEM. First, we’ll explore what makes STEM essential and why you should follow your passion into a career in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics. Next, we’ll look at STEM at Home and show you ways to keep moving forward in your chosen field while you’re distance learning. After that, we’ll meet Women in STEM and explore women’s breakthroughs in the energy field. Lastly, we’ll celebrate STEM Today and Tomorrow by introducing you to DOE scientists and engineers and the EERE programs giving students hands-on experience that will help create future STEM leaders.

In a world with so many questions in the field of energy and beyond, STEM gives us valuable tools and answers. Follow EERE on Facebook and Twitter and look for the #STEMtember hashtag to explore these exciting posts with us all month long!

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is advancing the White House’s STEM investment priorities. Published in 2018, the STEM Education Strategic Plan, sets out a federal strategy for the next five years where all Americans have access to high-quality STEM education.
