Science Applications International Corporation donated $300,000 to support a new active-learning initiative at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County that draws on technology and educational research to help students succeed in critical introductory math and science classes.

UMBC's College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences Active Science Teaching and Learning Environment facility aims to increase the number of students majoring in technology, science, engineering and mathematics. SAIC's donation will enable faculty to implement the best approaches to active learning and curriculum.

“In this age of increasing global competition, it is essential that we support the students who will move our country forward in science and technology,” said Larry Cox, SAIC senior vice president and business unit general manager. “This commitment to UMBC is an investment in both the number and quality of future scientists and engineers who will be available to work at companies like SAIC.”
