High School Partnerships   ___


As part of its efforts to educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians, Lockheed Martin’s approach to STEM outreach includes support for programs, events and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity.

Advancing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education is a critical focus for Lockheed Martin. We know firsthand the importance of educating our young people in these areas. Our future success and our nation’s technological advantage depend on a constant supply of highly trained, highly capable technical talent. We believe strongly that advancing STEM education requires collaboration among industry, educators, policymakers and families. As an industry leader, Lockheed Martin, with an employee population that includes 60,000 engineers, scientists and IT professionals, is committed to working with these groups to develop programs that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians. For students of all ages pursuing a postsecondary credential in STEM, receiving a financial boost towards tuition can be a dream come true. We are proud to play a part in the ambitions of bright students, many of whom come from underrepresented communities, by contributing towards hundreds of scholarships.
