Ingalls Awards STEM Grants
Ingalls Shipbuilding awards over $100,000 in STEM grants to 28 schools in Mississippi and Alabama.
Teachers from schools in Harrison, Jackson, and Hancock counties accepted checks ranging from $700 to $5,000 earlier this morning. The money will benefit science, technology, engineering, and math projects in the classroom.
Ingalls representatives believe these grants will give schools the proper resources in order for students to succeed. VP of Human Resources and Administration Edmond Hughes said, “Today is our investment in the community at a very early age so we can get those students who are interested in science and engineering and it’s just our investment to allow our schools and our teachers to get students interested and maybe one day they’ll join us at Ingalls Shipbuilding.”
In the past nine years presenting these grants, Ingalls Shipbuilding has awarded over $810,000 for STEM related projects.
