It’s a plane! It’s a rocket! It’s…

February 15, 2016 | Author: Tammy Wolfe

A blast in the classroom and having fun with education! Oh, to be a kid again. To be back in elementary or middle school learning science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) not just through text books and lectures, but by participating in incredibly exciting games, experiments and hands-on learning.

Classroom computers take us to space and beyond without leaving our chairs. Science kits can demonstrate physics and chemistry in action. Let’s fly a simulated space mission. How about participating in team math relays? We could design a lunar base to live in a sustainable manner. Find out how mechanical engineering keeps model buildings from falling. It would also be a total blast (literally and figuratively) to build small scale rockets from a variety of different materials. And our ideas really can take flight by building model airplanes to take off and carry different payloads.

These are just a few of the many things Honeywell Aerospace supported in 2015 through Honeywell Hometown Solutions (HHS), our corporate citizenship initiative. By promoting STEM education, we are inspiring our innovators, engineers and scientists of tomorrow around the globe. Last year, Aero supported STEM education through the creation of multi-media learning centers in schools in Vietnam and China; science kits in Indonesia; aero design competitions in Brazil; rocket clubs in Mexico; and a variety of STEM programs in the U.S. Since 2005 HHS has provided resources and financial support, and has encouraged employee volunteerism where Honeywell can make a lasting impact in five critical areas: science and math education, family safety and security, housing and shelter, habitat and conservation and humanitarian relief.

Oh, to be a kid again - with exposure to the creative tools and technologies that ignite a passion and love for STEM learning while having fun! A special thank you to the teachers around the world today for the innovation, creativity and personal commitment you demonstrate to transform your classrooms into engaging and fun learning laboratories.
