Atlas Associates - Atlas Foundation and Project Lead The Way Partnership

 




The Atlas Foundation - Project Lead The Way Partnership

We all know that our manufacturing workplaces require a unique set of skills. Jobs in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) continue to grow in the United States. It is expected that there will be 1.2 million unfilled STEM jobs by 2018. Students need more opportunities to develop the skills required to fill these jobs, and teachers need support empowering students to build these skills.

STEM is where jobs are today and where opportunities will be tomorrow. It is at the heart of American manufacturing – and thus, at the very heart of what we do at the Atlas Holdings family of companies.  

The Atlas Foundation and Atlas companies are partnering with Project Lead The Way, a nonprofit organization that provides transformative learning experiences for K-12 students and teachers nationwide, including in communities where Atlas associates live and where our children go to school. Through courses in computer science, engineering and biomedical science, students learn problem-solving strategies, critical and creative thinking, and how to communicate and collaborate with one another. The PLTW curriculum inspires students to love the very types of subjects – and pursue the very types of careers – that serve as the backbone of our Atlas companies. 

The Atlas Foundation and the Atlas family of companies are becoming part of the solution by supporting the implementation of new PLTW programs in our communities. We will enhance many local minds, and shape many futures, in the process. You too can be a part of the solution by making a donation to support a local PLTW program. No investment is too small; everyone is encouraged to be part of this effort. There are two ways you can donate:
