Monday, July 22, 2013 - 10:15am
The Kansas City Plant recently hosted top STEM educators from Historically Black Colleges and Universities, such as Howard University and North Carolina A&T, to help them incorporate 3-D modeling and advanced manufacturing into their curriculum.
KCP partners with Universities and local high schools to help prepare students with the technological skill sets needed for tomorrow's jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
The program is funded by a $4 million grant by the NNSA to 22 HBCUs and six NNSA sites, including the Kansas City Plant, in key STEM areas. This funding supports NNSA’s new Minority Serving Institution Partnership Program, a consortium program organized to build a sustainable STEM pipeline between NNSA sites and HBCUs.
