Community College Connections

Community Colleges across the country are revving up to educate tomorrow’s scientific and technical workforce, and Pellissippi State Community College is no exception.  Not only is the college in East Tennessee expanding the teaching of technology, the use of technology in instruction, and the transfer of technology to local business and industry, it?s also charging engines in a more literal sense. Through support from the U.S. Department of Energy, Pellissippi State is demonstrating its continued efforts toward sustainability and environmental stewardship with the recent addition of new electric vehicle charging stations at two of its campuses. Anyone with a vehicle compatible with the station may use it and for now there is no cost to the users.

The .EDUconnections website spotlights educational institutions with connections to DOE scientific research programs.
