nation.

“How fabulous to be partnering with Samsung, a leading technology company that
understands the importance of STEM education and the doors it can open for
today’s students,” said Diane Wood, President of NEEF. “Greening STEM is a
great way to support young people in learning key skills while improving the
environment in their own communities, especially by creating sustainable
solutions to 21^st century environmental challenges. With Samsung’s support,
EE Week's reach will extend further to millions of students and educators
across the United States.”

“As a company committed to raising enthusiasm for STEM education, Samsung
hopes that our support of NEEF’s programming throughout the year helps steer

interest in these key subject areas,” said David Steel, Executive Vice
President of Samsung Electronics North America. “NEEF makes learning about
STEM subjects accessible and interesting for students, and helps demonstrate
how they can positively impact the environment and our communities.”
