Buildings are used every day by almost all members of U.S. society, which is why diversity in building science professionals is critical to better understanding the needs of all building occupants.

JUMP into STEM is designed to inspire the next generation of building scientists through hands-on learning that culminates with an opportunity to win an internship at a national laboratory. With diversity at the forefront, the collegiate competition emphasizes the inclusion of an interdisciplinary mix of majors and students underrepresented in the building science field.
