Powering the Future: Inspiring the Next Generation of Innovators

The electric power grid is the largest man-made machine ever created. It’s vast, complex, and essential to modern life. And, as it continues to serve more people and industries and accommodate new challenges, it will require a steady pipeline of smart, well-educated people to invent, design, build, operate, and secure the power systems of the future. In this episode, I talk with educator John Cassleman, who manages SEL’s K-12 Education Outreach program, about how we can get more kids excited about science, technology, engineering, and math—and maybe even inspire the next Thomas Edisons, Nikola Teslas, and Ed Schweitzers.
