Raytheon Promoting STEM Education in Southern Arizona

The company’s vice president of engineering says it has a responsibility to the community.

One of Southern Arizona’s largest employers, Raytheon has taken a special interest in promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) at schools.   Arizona 360 spoke to Laura McGill, vice president of engineering at Raytheon, who said the company is working to provide teachers "supplemental help," including after-school programs for students and summer opportunities for teachers.    "Southern Arizona has invested in us, they have allowed us to expand our facilities as we need to for the growth we are experiencing. It’s important for us to give back to the local community," said McGill.
