Drivers at the pump help fuel STEM education in local schools

 

HUMBOLDT, DEL NORTE, MENDOCINO COUNTIES, CA. – Drivers at the pump are helping fuel science, technology, engineering, and math programs in local schools.

The numbers are in for Chevron’s 2017 Fuel your School program within the North Coast.

One dollar was donated for every eight or more gallons purchased at a Chevron or Texaco gas stations this October, generating $100,000 for our schools.

This amount went to 9,000 students working on 124 different projects, many STEM-based, in 59 public schools in Humboldt, Del Norte and Mendocino counties.

Since 2013, $500,000 has been generated through the program for schools in these counties.
