In the Community

Our staff is expert at developing solutions that help build a better tomorrow today — and that practical, innovative spirit carries through to our community interactions. Staff members generously donate time and other resources to support food drives, blood drives, and other outreach programs.

Yet, as a research and development organization, the next generation of scientists and engineers is key to our continued success. We especially value programs and activities that support science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) for students. We sponsor internships and scholarships and serve as science fair judges and classroom speakers for area schools, among other activities.
