THE FUTURE OF STEM

Every kid dreams of changing the world. We’re providing the tools to do it.

Our employee-owners rely on STEM skills, passion and a lifelong curiosity every day. We live for the opportunity to ignite the same spark in students. The future is STEM — and we’re committed to helping equip the young leaders, and their teachers, who are dreaming up the next big thing.

BRINGING STEM TO STUDENTS WHEREVER THEY ARE

STEM INITIATIVES

Think big, start small.

Imagine a massive room where STEM students are celebrated with air horns and confetti. Or where hundreds of teachers are testing an interactive way to teach a concept previously out of reach. We create those big events and one-of-a-kind programs, while also serving up practical, everyday resources to help educators inspire in imaginative ways. 

 
Giving kids a head start on their futures.

Project Lead The Way (PLTW) has transformed the STEM learning experience for millions of students and their teachers. What better foundation for an investment in the future? We’re committing $1.5 million over three years to help increase access to and participation in PLTW programs for underserved students across the U.S.

Programs & Resources

Caring, from coast to coast.

In addition to participating in our national and international programs, our employee-owners are out there spreading the STEM word in other empowering ways. In one corner of the world, a group of our engineers talked shop at a local middle school before leading a STEM activity. Elsewhere, a team assembled STEM kits for a mobile STEM learning program. And young female students saw a glimpse of their future when they shadowed some of our women engineers as part of a Girls Inc. program.
