Preparing the Next Generation of STEM Leaders.
Lockheed Martin and National 4‑H Council are on a mission to connect today’s youth to the discovery and exploration of career opportunities in STEM. Through this partnership, 4‑H will provide the opportunities youth need to explore STEM, develop skills necessary for success, and immerse themselves in the field of work and experience these skills at work. With the support of Lockheed Martin employees, scientists and engineers from across the country will volunteer their time to mentor 4‑H’ers with specific outreach to engage girls and minority youth, who are significantly under-represented in STEM degrees and careers.
Expanding the Impact
In 2010, Lockheed Martin partnered with National 4‑H Council to develop a robust 4‑H Robotics program that transformed 4‑H Science and to help catapult a 4‑H National Youth Science Day initiative. The program has produced 450 robotics clubs and counting– connecting 1.8 million youth across the nation to STEM. Now, Lockheed Martin will help National 4‑H Council establish the 4‑H Career Pathway as a nationwide framework for building the STEM talent pipeline of future scientists, engineers and community science professionals who will lead at work and in their communities.
