Atlantic City Electric, through a partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Atlantic City and Gloucester County, has launched a new program called the Atlantic City Electric STEM Club. The program, funded by a $50,000 grant from Atlantic City Electric, provides Boys and Girls Club representatives an engaging project-based curriculum and career development program to help prepare elementary, middle and high school-aged students for career opportunities in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
Flanked by local students, representatives of Atlantic City Electric present $50,000 to Boys and Girls Club personnel to support the new Atlantic City Electric STEM Club.
