The economic growth and prosperity of local communities thrives on an educated and innovative workforce. The pursuit of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) is critical to a strong economic future. Devon is committed to helping communities inspire young people to pursue an interest in the STEM subjects by working together with schools and community organizations to enhance access to STEM education.
Devon partners with schools across its operating areas to encourage students to take an interest in STEM subjects at an early age through the Devon Science Giants program. Schools that create innovative science curriculum are eligible to apply for the annual grant.
Devon also believes in the impact STEM activities have on developing students’ individual pursuits of STEM beyond the classroom. Through partnerships with the FFA, Girl Scouts, the OKC Thunder and more, Devon works to inspire future leaders to pursue an interest in the STEM subjects.
Devon’s STEM initiatives provide a pathway for students, teachers and parents to become more aware of the importance of STEM in strengthening academic and career development for future generations.
