Nexans Partners with the Edison Foundation to Promote STEM Learning & Innovation

Mar 13, 2022

Nexans is proud to announce it is now a sponsor of the Edison Innovation Foundation, a nonprofit group that organizes the annual Thomas Edison Pitch Contest. This competition, open to U.S. students in grades 4 through 12, encourages invention, innovation and entrepreneurship. As a Gold sponsor, Nexans sits on the judging panel that selects the team that best incorporates alternative energy in their invention.

The number of students participating in the Thomas Edison Pitch Contest has doubled since 2019 to 540 students representing 84 schools from 24 states. The competition provides students with a unique hands-on learning opportunity to invent a working solution for a problem that they see in the world today and with the supplies to make it happen. To promote entrepreneurship as well, participants are challenged to create a video aimed to sell the product or solution they propose in the first round and a 5-minute elevator pitch to a panel of judges in the final round.

Final winners will be announced on May 18, 2022. Learn more on
