In the United States, we are continually working toward superior energy development, grid resiliency, economic competitiveness, and technology innovation, and thus investment in students to advance science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields is critical. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, the architecture and engineering fields of study represent only 7% of all undergraduate degrees awarded for the 2015-2016 academic year.1  Focusing on this education area, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) launched the JUMP into STEM initiative to advance student skills in the STEM fields and encourage early-stage research in building energy efficiency.
