Join the Solar Decathlon High School Program as an Alumni Mentor!

Tuesday, August 8, 2023

A Solar Decathlon alum gives a STEM career talk to high school students.

Solar Decathlon Pathways (SD Pathways) is back this fall, bringing STEM career talks to U.S. high school classrooms—and we are looking for alumni and educators to participate!

SD Pathways introduces high school students to clean energy and STEM careers by connecting them with U.S. Department of Energy Solar Decathlon® alumni.

“I believe that it is important to inform and inspire young people to get into a field that is ripe with opportunity. I love my career and am thankful for the opportunity to share my experience with young people.”

Through the SD Pathways program:

  • Solar Decathlon alumni share their personal pathways to careers in architecture, engineering, renewable energy, sustainable design, or construction industries.
  • Educators receive pre- or post-lesson activities and resources on careers in architecture and construction, information technology, manufacturing, and STEM fields.
  • Students and teachers gain awareness about the many paths to a STEAM career.
