Fact: Studies show that children exposed to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) educational resources at a young age perform better in those subject that students who are not. BPA recently helped inspire young minds at a diversity-focused STEM + Art event in Fairview, Oregon called ""Full STEAM Ahead"". Kids enjoyed learning about the hydropower system and future careers at BPA. #DiversityInSTEM #Diversity #STEM #Science #Engineering #WomeninSTEM #GirlsInSTEM #DiversityInScience

This stunning photo of The Dalles Dam took top honors in the renewable energy category of a national Department of Energy photo contest. The Dalles Dam is capable of producing more than 2000 MW of renewable energy, enough to power more than 1.5 million homes! Congrats to photographer and BPA Hydro Scheduler Rafael Kaup on his win. #HydroFlowsHere

Because hydropower is a domestic source of energy, the Northwest is able to produce most of its own power without being reliant on international fuel sources.
