It’s both inside and outside the classroom that Entergy Arkansas puts a focus on STEAM opportunities! Through the Museum of Discovery, “Girls in STEM” workshops and The Repertory Theatre, we encourage young people to stretch their imaginations and consider the possibilities of a career in any number of fields that will be the jobs of tomorrow.
Hungry bellies are not only painful, but they distract from the important things families need to focus on to live their best lives.

Each year, Entergy Arkansas partners with Little Rock International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) Local 34 to choose one or more elementary schools and provide each student at the school a new winter coat. Dubbed Operation Warm, the project raised enough funds to provide 800 coats to students in December of 2022.
Entergy Arkansas employees spend hours in schools and aftercare programs across the state, mentoring, reading and helping students achieve their educational goals.
