Northrop Grumman awards grants to Los Angeles area schools to promote STEM

AZUSA, Calif. – Northrop Grumman has provided grants worth a total of $2,700 to support science, technology, engineering and mathematics educational initiatives at the Greater Los Angeles area schools.

Northrop Grumman awarded nine individual grants of $300 each to teachers in local elementary, middle and high schools to fund projects that increase student awareness of opportunities in STEM fields. The grants were open to teachers at any public or charter school with an open enrollment policy. Selection was based upon the proposed activity’s potential to engage students and the level of STEM focus.

“Northrop Grumman is committed to providing resources to help teachers promote awareness of the STEM disciplines to students at an early age,” said Stephen J. Toner, vice president of Northrop Grumman’s Azusa Operations. “These grants will strengthen existing programs and better prepare students for careers in the technical fields.”

The grant program was announced in recognition of National Engineers Week in mid-February and winners were notified in May. Grants must be used in the current calendar year to purchase equipment, supplies, publications or transportation related to the proposed STEM project.

The following teachers received the Northrop Grumman National Engineers Week STEM grants:

 

  • Louise Battles – Mountain View Elementary School (Azusa)
  • Mike Dickinson – Patrick Henry Elementary School (Anaheim)
  • Debbie Hill – Gladstone St. Elementary School (Azusa)
  • Shinobu Hirota – Brea Country Hills School (Brea)
  • John Jones – Diamond Bar High School (Diamond Bar)
  • Elizabeth Landrum – Andres Duarte Elementary School (Duarte)
  • Alexis Piazza – Gabriella Charter School (Los Angeles)
  • Tarek Salloum – Patrick Henry Elementary School (Anaheim)
  • Lindi Williams – Gabriella Charter School (Los Angeles)

Other programs include Discover “E,” Teachers and Engineers for Academic Achievement and Worthwhile to Help High School Youth, a High School Involvement Partnership.
