After the closing of the Chrysler Plant in Newark in 2008, many Delawareans were left without jobs. Now with the opening of the Bloom Energy plant, we expect to see many new jobs created, which can benefit Newark residents and university students alike.
The university may do well to consider some sort of partnership with Bloom Energy so that students and Bloom Energy can benefit from internships over winter and summer sessions, and potentially careers.
While Bloom certainly has the potential to offer jobs to science, technology, engineering and math majors, we hope opportunities might also be available for non-science majors who can offer their skills and talents in other ways. We are excited to see what Bloom’s impact on the Delaware community will be, and we hope the company facilitates positive progress and opportunities for university students as well as the larger community.
