Raytheon has provided $1.5M to help the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation launch new educational initiatives as part of the year-long celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.

The non-profit organization said Wednesday the money will support events and programs that will introduce augmented reality, establish space labs at schools nationwide and hold a forum series to promote Apollo 11 and its impact on society.

"The Apollo program sparked the scientific achievement of a generation to explore and transform science, technology and education," said Thomas Kennedy, Raytheon chairman and CEO.

He added that the company looks forward to helping JFK Library promote transformative technology “to stimulate a new generation of moonshot thinkers."

As part of the Apollo 11 celebration, NASA will also host events at select universities across the U.S. to gather technology and engineering students to discuss technology innovation and encourage collaboration.
