About the Event

AABE Virginia is hosting a virtual BEAM event with 2nd grade students at Montgomery Elementary School (Atlanta, Georgia).  This event is apart of a collaboration with DeKalb County School District in promoting STEM education to students by exposing them to industry topics, such as RENAWABLES.
