The 2023–2024 JUMP into STEM Challenge Winners include nine teams of college students with diverse backgrounds and academic majors exploring solutions toward an equitable clean energy future through building science. Now in its sixth year, the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) have utilized this competition to provide hands-on experience and mentorship to the next generation of building scientists.

This collegiate competition invites interdisciplinary student teams across architecture, engineering, public policy, computer science, economics, and more to develop solutions to some of the buildings sector’s biggest challenges.
