Raytheon (NYSE: RTN) is hosting 72 high school students at its Sum of all Thrills experience at INNOVENTIONS at Walt Disney World’s Epcot, as part of the firm’s commitment to STEM education.
According to the firm, “‘The Sum of all Thrills’ allows visitors to custom design a virtual thrill ride through the use of innovative touch screen technology and experience their creation in a robotic simulator. The exhibit combines important lessons in math and science during the creation of the ride and is an example of how Raytheon is using innovation to encourage students to develop and sustain an interest in STEM subjects.”
These students are in Florida to take part in the AFA’s CyberPatriot All Service Junior ROTC and Civil Air Patrol Division semifinal competition.
“Raytheon takes immense pride and satisfaction in its commitment to ensuring the STEM pipeline, and we’re excited to host the next generation of cyber professionals at our premiere interactive, math-based exhibit,” said Lynn Dugle, president of Raytheon’s Intelligence and Information Systems business. “We hope this invitation will be one of many to inspire these students to pursue STEM careers.”
