Lockheed Martin Corporation (NYSE: LMT) will provide $300, 000 to the National Math and Science Initiative (NMSI) to launch the first phase of a new program, the Initiative for Military Families, which will provide Advanced Placement courses in math and science to children from military families.
According to Lockheed, “the K-12 outreach initiative, Engineers in the Classroom, Lockheed Martin is partnering with NMSI and the Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) on the Initiative for Military Families. Engineers in the Classroom supports science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education efforts by supplementing school STEM curriculums with fun, hands-on learning activities that give students and Lockheed Martin engineers a chance to work together.”
“As a global security company, Lockheed Martin is committed to educating our young people in science and math. Our future success, and the future technological success of our nation, is dependent on a pipeline of highly trained, highly capable technical talent, ” said Dr. Ray O. Johnson, Lockheed Martin Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “This project will help ensure that children of service members who are guardians of our freedom have access to the best education resources possible.”
