Math and Science Initiatives

Closing the learning gap

Engineers help shape the future. Whether it’s developing new fuel sources, managing energy resources more efficiently or exploring the outer edges of the universe, engineers make it happen. But not enough U.S. students are pursuing engineering or other careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). By supporting programs that improve teaching and learning in these key areas, ExxonMobil is dedicated to making a difference in our children’s lives and our nation’s future.
