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, policy makers 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.
To help address these challenges and strengthen the workforce pipeline, Lockheed Martin provides generous funding to STEM education outreach activities for students across the entire K-16 spectrum. We are committed to supporting programs, events and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity.
Lockheed Martin supports a wide-range of diverse and sustainable STEM activities that reach students and educators from elementary school through college. Through its Engineers in the Classroom STEM education outreach initiative, Lockheed Martin provides numerous opportunities for employees to interact with the next generation of engineers and technologists by serving as local school advisors, extracurricular activity mentors and career role models for students in communities where we live and work.
