Part of the ongoing STEM Dialogue Series, this month’s STEM to Hydro Dialogue Workshop engages with industry and academia to discuss a potential competition designed to attract college-level students interest in hydropower.

As a participant of this free workshop, taking place on August 12, 2021 at 3 p.m. MT, you will help us determine the need for and possible structure of a collegiate hydropower competition.

Inspired by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Water Power Technologies Office’s (WPTO) Marine Energy Collegiate Competition, the competition provides students with real-world experience, valuable education on the possibilities of hydropower, and a solid foundation for decision making when establishing their career paths.

​With DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, join the Hydropower Foundation and lend your expertise to the DOE Water Power Technologies Office’s efforts to develop a strong hydropower workforce in the United States.
