POWER Foundation Supports Discover Technology

May 2015

HAILEY, Idaho (May 1, 2015) – The POWER Foundation is proud to help show children in Idaho that science and technology can be fun by providing financial support to Discover Technology. Discover Technology is an Idaho-based non-profit organization that brings hands-on STEM demonstrations to schools and runs STEM Summer Camps in Idaho and neighboring states.

During the school year Discover Technology’s Mobile STEM Bus travels to schools around Idaho. The group performs high-energy science-based presentations. The students then get to board the Mobile STEM Bus to get individual hands-on time with learning tools such as Snap Circuits, LEGO EVs, electromagnets, robots, 3D printers and more.

“The work that Discover Technologies does is really important for showing kids and young adults the fun and practical sides of science and technology”, said Bret Moffett, EVP of POWER Engineers and Chairman of the POWER Foundation. “Without the Mobile STEM Bus, some students might not have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with science. That personal experience is very powerful.”
