EVMWD Offers Free STEM Program to High School Students

Elsinore Valley Municipal Water District (EVMWD) is excited to offer a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in Public Utilities Learning Lab (STEM PULL) to local high school students in July 2021. The weeklong event is a collaboration between Riverside Public Utilities, EVMWD, Bourns Engineering, and other local organizations.

During the STEM PULL event, high school students will get an in-depth view of STEM knowledge and application within the context of public utilities, as well as career possibilities within the industry.

“We are thrilled to offer this fantastic program to our local high school students,” said Phil Williams, board president of EVMWD. “By participating in STEM PULL, students will gain valuable, real-world skills and learn from industry professionals. We hope this will open their eyes to the many exciting opportunities that exist within the water/wastewater public utilities field.”

Throughout the weeklong event, students will participate in live presentations, facility tours, hands-on activities, and a final group design challenge. As an additional bonus, three winning teams will receive prizes up to $1,000. STEM PULL 2021 will be held in a virtual format to ensure the safety of all participants, but future programs will include in-person components.

The program is open to all high school students in EVMWD’s service area at no cost. Registration for STEM PULL 2021 is open from now until April 30. Visit www.evmwd.com/STEMPULL to sign up or contact Kaitlyn Wu at kwu@evmwd.net with any questions.
