Partnering to “Fuel the Future” of STEM Education 09-03


Partnering to “Fuel the Future” of STEM Education

Today’s students need a great education in science, technology, engineering, and math—known as STEM—to succeed. The U.S. Department of Labor projects that 15 of the 20 fastest growing careers in 2014 will require math or science skills.
That’s why we’re so excited that Chevron, our single most generous corporate partner, is tackling STEM projects on DonorsChoose.org. Through their Fuel Your School initiative, Chevron has provided over $3.5 million in funding to STEM projects reaching more than 570,000 students. Every time a Chevron customer filled up their gas tank, $1 helped provide microscopes, textbooks, technology and other supplies requested by nearly 5,000 teachers.
To show the impact of each dollar contributed, Chevron used the DonorsChoose.org API to build maps of the projects they funded. For example, check out the projects funded in Sacramento — and think of the future architects, scientists, astronauts and engineers who now have the resources they need for a great education.
Below are a few of those students opening up their newly funded STEM projects in Contra Costa County, CA.
