LCEC is committed to supporting local Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) programs. Along with monthly high school STEM student tours and mentoring, LCEC is involved with the STEM @ Work program.
LCEC continually partners with agencies, groups and events to ensure local student’s needs are met. Even small efforts are a step toward developing a sustainable workforce. LCEC also promotes continuing education internally with a strong professional development program and tuition reimbursement benefit. Quality workers equate to excellent service for customers and help to build the local economy.
At a recent STEM @ Work kick-off event, LCEC helped to test the innovative skills of local students through the STEM Challenge. Students were broken into teams and given an hour to draw, design and build a container that would hold a raw egg and be dropped at varying heights. LCEC mechanic helper Jon Sheene had the honor of taking the 20 egg transport inventions up 20 feet in a bucket truck and dropping them. Only 12 survived. During the next round, egg contraptions were dropped from 50 feet high and six did not crack under pressure.
The LCEC Killa-Watts have been putting in extra hours after work to rehearse for a special performance on October 25 at the Lee Civic Center. The dynamic band of five LCEC employees will be opening for Lee Greenwood in a tribute to local veterans.

Veterans Country Jam was started by George Tice, a Desert Storm Veteran who continues to give back to the community. Proceeds from the concert will go to Southwest Florida American Legion, Honor Flight, National Coalition for Patriots and VFW groups.
