SAIC (NYSE: SAI) will partner with New Century High School in Huntsville, Ala., to create a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum.
According the firm, “In addition to financial contributions, SAIC employees will also volunteer their time to assist the students’ development in the areas of problem solving, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning skills. SAIC’s support will enable New Century to implement PLTW’s Pathway to Engineering and Biomedical Sciences Program – both critical areas of interest in the Huntsville area.”
“As the uses of science and technology expand in today’s job market, our nation will need a constant supply of engineers graduating from college in order to remain competitive in the world’s marketplace, ” said Amy Alving, SAIC chief technology officer. “Industry can play a vital role in addressing this shortfall.”
