working with student


Ƶ is working to expand educational opportunities in Southern Arizona. Through partnerships with schools, nonprofit groups and other community organizations, Ƶ is helping teachers deliver compelling lessons, particularly in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields. We’re also preparing students for opportunities in the energy industry.

We are pleased to offer in addition to in-person lessons. These virtual offerings allow students to learn about electricity, renewable energy, energy efficiency, and electrical safety from either the classroom or their own homes.

For more than 20 years, Ƶ and Children’s Museum Tucson have partnered to bring energy education to life through the Electri-city exhibit.


Since 2011, Ƶ has sponsored the University of Arizona Tech Parks program, Racing the Sun.

Through a partnership with the Pima County School Superintendent’s STEMAZing program, Ƶ hosts STEM-based workshops for teachers.

Every summer, Ƶ hires teachers enrolled in the University of Arizona’s Teachers in Industry program and provides them with real-world industry experience that they can take back to their classrooms in the fall.


To help prepare the next generation of leaders, Ƶ invests in today’s youth by providing internship opportunities to high school and college students.

Students take two semesters of classes at Pima Community College to better prepare them for Ƶ craft internships and pre-apprenticeship programs.
