Goodrich Foundation Awards STEM Grant For NC Women And Minority Students

 

Goodrich Foundation Awards Grant to Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation for Innovative Engineering Course
  • $25,000 grant encourages minority students to study engineering and science for future work in aerospace industry

CHARLOTTE, N.C.,  -- Goodrich Foundation has awarded the Maricopa Community Colleges Foundation in Phoenix, Ariz. a $25,000 grant to fund a new course at South Mountain Community College (SMCC) designed to encourage women and minority students to study science, math, technology and engineering. SMCC is a federally-designated Minority Serving Institution where over half of the student population comes from traditionally underserved ethnic groups.

The grant will cover items such as student tuition, supplies, equipment and instructor fees. The innovative course includes hands-on student design projects, such as a balloon launch, as well as traditional structured classroom and lab work. Students will apply their newly learned skills toward completing a challenging design project before the semester ends.

Tom Mepham, President of Goodrich Interiors which is headquartered in Phoenix, said, "As a major aerospace and defense system supplier, we are keenly aware of the need for today's college students to study math, science and engineering. This grant will be used to develop local engineering and technical talent for high tech aerospace jobs, and Goodrich is proud to have a role in the creation of this important new program."
