Raytheon: Inspiring Enthusiasm for Math and Science

We, as a nation, are facing an education crisis. Year after year, the United States slips further behind our international competitors in science, technology and innovation. Globally, U.S. students rank only 25th in math and 17th in science[i]. It’s clear that the future of this country as a leader in technology and innovation is at risk. Waltham-based Raytheon is among a group of Massachusetts companies who believe tomorrow’s engineers and technologists need to be excited by and interested in math today. With science and technology a vital driver of our local and global economies, Raytheon focuses the majority of its community involvement on bringing math and science education to life — both to encourage and support students, and to protect our nation’s position as an economic leader.
