Boeing, in partnership with the Alamo STEM Ecosystem and ESC Region 20, recently hosted its first ever STEM Signing Day celebrating nearly 50 students from 14 school districts across Bexar County. Just like signing day for athletes, eighth graders and graduating high school seniors signed letters of intent to further their education in a STEM discipline.
At the ceremony, attended by family members and education and community leaders, high school seniors committed to attend a two- or four-year college or university to pursue a STEM degree or program. The event also recognized graduating eighth grade students who plan to select the STEM Endorsement as part of their high school graduation requirements. Boeing employees were on hand to demonstrate real world connections to STEM learning, such as 3D printing, and speak with students about their career pathways in aerospace.
This year, Boeing expanded its support of STEM Signing Days to ten cities across the U.S., honoring more than 450 outstanding students for their commitment to STEM education.
Locally, Boeing is proud to support the next generation of innovators. In the past year, Boeing has invested $5.8 million in charitable contributions in Texas, including grants to support hands-on STEM learning opportunities. We’re excited to see what the future brings for these talented students!
