Raytheon’s success in technology leadership is based upon a strong foundation of, and commitment to, education. Through the company’s MathMovesU® program, Raytheon is fostering student interest in math and science in the U.S. and around the world. “We understand that to inspire students, we need to engage them when they are young, support them during critical middle school years, and continue to build on that support throughout their academic lives,” said Riddle.

An example of the company’s commitment to math and science education in the Middle East is the upcoming launch of Raytheon’s MathAlive!® educational exhibit at the Abu Dhabi Science Festival. Customized for regional audiences, MathAlive! is a unique interactive experience designed to spark interest in math and science among students between 7 and 15 years old and inspire them to explore technology-based careers of the future, helping to support and sustain the region’s economy. MathAlive! will be present across the region over the next five years touring a number of venues.

“We believe the fun, immersive, and dual-language MathAlive! exhibit will inspire and excite students to pursue technology-related careers, which fully aligns with and supports the UAE 2030 Vision of developing the next-generation, knowledge-based workforce,” added Riddle.
