Developing a diverse and knowledgeable workforce for building science is critical to meeting future decarbonization goals set by the U.S. Department of Energy. That is why the sixth annual JUMP into STEM competition is taking building science education out of the classroom and into the real world with new challenges that will inspire creativity, innovation, and teamwork for 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.
