Our long time partners Devon Energy are celebrating 50 years of success in the oil and gas industry this month. Like the Ripken Foundation, Devon has a focus on STEM education. Over the years we have partnered with Devon Energy to install STEM centers in local schools across America.
Harvard deemed the need for a STEM-capable workforce an “urgent national priority.” Our response: inspire a new generation of innovators. The Cal Ripken, Sr. Foundation sees the STEM education gap as an opportunity to apply key lessons from sports—teamwork, respect, communication, and resilience—to the classroom.
We look forward to continuing our partnership with Devon Energy and happy 50th anniversary!
