Ingalls Shipbuilding Awards 2014 STEM Grants

Huntington Ingalls Industries’ Ingalls Shipbuilding division has awarded nearly $108,000 in grants for 25 different projects from schools and educational organizations in Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana.

The grants, which were requested by all of the organizations, will be used for projects associated with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

This is the sixth year for Ingalls’ STEM program. The company has awarded more than $500,000 for STEM-related projects during that period.

We build some of the most complex products in the world, and we need to prepare students to be successful in this type of environment,” said Ingalls Shipbuilding President Irwin F. Edenzon. “Developing the workforce across the Gulf Coast is a priority for us, and that’s why we’re making these STEM investments. Another important attribute of these STEM projects is the team approach to problem-solving. Every team needs a leader. So the teachers and administrators here today are helping to not only create a skilled workforce and future engineers, but they are also helping create future leaders. The STEM projects we’re supporting provide students with a solid foundation they can build on no matter what career they choose or where they choose to do it.”
