February 13, 2023 — The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] today announced a $1 million investment in STEM NOLA to support the construction of the organization’s state-of-the-art STEM Innovation Hub. Boeing’s investment will further STEM NOLA’s mission to make science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education more accessible to under-resourced communities.
“Boeing invests in STEM education because it is the rocket fuel that will propel the aerospace industry forward – including our future space programs,” said Ted Colbert, CEO of Boeing Defense, Space and Security. “These bright, young minds will one day take us to new deep space destinations, including Mars and beyond. And with the help of nonprofit partners like STEM NOLA, I know we’re setting the future generation of aerospace leaders on the path to long-term success.”
Later this year, STEM NOLA will break ground on the 40,000-square-foot building in New Orleans East that will serve as the STEM Innovation Hub. The Hub will house laboratory space, classrooms, meeting spaces and 21st-century technology to expose, educate, train and connect students to STEM careers and skills.
