The mission of the Energy Department is to ensure America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions.
Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS)
The mission of the Office of Workforce Development for Teachers and Scientists (WDTS) is to help ensure that DOE and the Nation have a sustained pipeline of highly skilled and diverse science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) workers. This is accomplished through support of undergraduate internships and visiting faculty programs at the DOE laboratories; a graduate fellowship program, which also involves the DOE laboratories; the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship for K-12 teachers, which is administered by WDTS for DOE and for a number of other federal agencies; and the nation-wide, middle- and high-school science competitions that culminate annually in the National Science Bowl® in Washington D.C.
National Science Bowl® (NSB)
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Science Bowl® is a nationwide academic competition that tests students’ knowledge in all areas of science and mathematics.
