Supporting STEM in schools
American Transmission Co. is committed to helping bolster science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM, courses in schools. Employees visit middle and high schools throughout ATC’s footprint to share their own stories about successful careers in STEM. ATC also helps schools design projects that give students real-world experience solving engineering problems.
We are a proud partner of Milwaukee Public Schools and their Adopt-a-School Program. Our Fairview School is a K-8 school that educates using STEM curriculum in all grade levels. Since 2017, we have worked with Fairview to support classroom projects, tours of our headquarters and provide industry career education for students.
Last year, several ATC employees supported STEM Forward’s Future City Competition, a national program that encourages students to use STEM to solve real-world problems. The challenge to students was to design a city that addressed age-related accessibility issues. Students created a virtual city, wrote a 1,500-word essay, created a physical model and drafted a project plan.
Our employees enjoy these opportunities to share their expertise and support the education of future engineers and industry experts.
