AES and AEI staff gave a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) presentation to Glennallen High School students in October. The students were given an outline of the different types of scientists and engineers that AEI/AES/AGL employ or are seeking to employ in the varying degrees that are available. Part of the presentation was to show the financial benefits of becoming an engineer/scientist.

“The trip was encouraging, to see the high school students interested in what we do. I felt that we had encouraged them also into giving more thought to their science class,” said Valda Akpik, AES administrative assistant.
