Next Generation Engineering Programs at Stony Brook University Receives Sponsorship Support from National Grid

SBM MSHS National Grid, an international energy delivery company, has awarded a sustainable grant to the Next Generation Engineering Programs at Stony Brook University, which promote engineering among diverse and high needs populations and meet the requirements of the Next Generation Science Standards “This program supports National Grid’s Engineering Our Future initiative, designed to inspire youth and attract and develop engineers,” said Mauri Myers-Solages, Corporate Citizenship Manager of National Grid. “We, along with other utilities across the country, are facing a looming shortage of engineers so it makes sense for us to work with Stony Brook University in developing the next generation of talent needed to help support the nation’s energy delivery system,” she added.
