Booz Allen Celebrates Engineering with Sponsorship of Children’s Science Center
From our commitment to hire and retain innovators and technology experts, to our daily work with clients to solve some of the world’s toughest technological challenges, to our employees’ volunteer efforts with non-profit groups, Booz Allen demonstrates the firm’s belief in the importance of STEM education with engagement in a variety of initiatives. Our employees’ enthusiasm for and support of early STEM education goes well beyond business altruism and community support; it is essential to our business model and aspirations.
The firm is proud to be a founding sponsor of the Children’s Science Center, an interactive exploration center in Fairfax, VA where children, families, and school groups can learn about and experience fun science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) principles.
This past weekend, around 100 Booz Allen employees and their children explored STEM concepts at the Science Center through interacting with hands-on exhibits and activities at the Inspiration Hub, Tinker Shop, Experiment Bar, and the Discovery Zone. The kids got their hands dirty making slime and snow, and developed a love of STEM in the process. Check out photos here.
This summer, the Science Center will launch a new exhibit on the Robotic Arm. For more information, visit the www.childsci.org.
