News from STP: El Campo High School POWER SET and WIT Visit

January 18, 2017

    The El Campo High School chapters of POWER SET (Powerful Opportunities for Women Eager and Ready for Science, Engineering and Technology) and WIT (Workforce Industry Training)came to visit and tour STP on January 12, 2017. The club's sponsors, teachers Marissa McCoy and Adrian Canales, bring their students yearly.

    The purpose of POWER SET is to target local female high school students who show significant interest and aptitude in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). It also encourages female students to explore professional opportunities in nuclear and STEM-related fields.

    WIT is modeled on the POWER SET program but open to both male and female students in high schools. It provides the educational tools and essential support to pursue educational professional opportunities in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) technical fields. WIT is sponsored by Nuclear Power Institute. Established in 2007, NPI is a statewide partnership led by the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and headquartered at Texas A&M University.
