In recognition of the engineers working on the Bruce Power site during National Engineering Month, the company is donating $31,500 to local organizations offering Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programming for youth.
“As one of the world’s largest nuclear facilities, engineers play a vital role in Bruce Power’s continued safe operation, as we provide a third of the power to Ontario homes, businesses and hospitals,” said Gary Newman, Bruce Power’s Chief Engineer and Senior Vice President. “As we progress one of Canada’s largest clean energy infrastructure projects with our Major Component Replacements and Life-Extension Program, we’re helping to spark the next generation of engineers to ensure a stable and diverse workforce for decades to come.”
The recipients of Bruce Power’s donation include various school programs through the Grey Bruce Ontario Youth Apprentice Program; First Lego League Robotics; Kinectic Knights First Robotics; Grey Bruce Regional Skills Competition; and Bluewater Regional Science and Technology Fair. Each organization submitted an application for support through Bruce Power’s Community Investment Program.
In addition to these donations, Bruce Power annually provides STEM-focused elementary and secondary school awards across Bruce, Grey and Huron counties, as well as scholarships for Indigenous students.
