Students and professors from across the country, an esteemed panel of judges, and program supporters from the U.S. Department of Energy converged in Golden, Colorado, for the 2023 JUMP into STEM Final Competition. The two-day event included networking sessions, professor collaboration opportunities, early-career support, tours of the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL’s) world-class facilities, and the main event: eight student-team presentations with unique solutions to the most pressing issues facing today’s building industry. Each of the eight student teams invited to the Final Competition had 20 minutes to present their innovative building industry solutions to the live audience and answer questions from the panel of judges.
