The Northrop Grumman Foundation, which supports diverse and sustainable programs for students and teachers, recently pledged $1 million toward the National Museum of the United States Army. The Northrop Grumman grant will sponsor one of five state-of-the-art learning tables in the Museum’s Experiential Learning Center. The table is a multi-user, multi-touch boardroom–like table with motion sensing technology that will engage students in interactive geography, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (G-STEM) applications. Each table will accommodate up to a dozen students working individually, or it can be divided into quadrants for team learning activities.
“We are proud to partner with the National Museum of the United States Army,” said Sandra Evers-Manly, President, Northrop Grumman Foundation. “We seek to spark excitement about STEM education with young visitors, and to honor all U.S. Army soldiers, including our Northrop Grumman employees who have served in this branch of the service. The Museum will offer an enlightening and meaningful experience for its visitors that will serve as a window to future generations about the tremendous contributions and sacrifices that the U.S. Army has made on behalf of our nation.”
“For over 70 years, Northrop Grumman has forged an unparalleled relationship with the U.S. Army, pioneering innovative technologies that continually support our Soldiers in the completion of their varied missions,” said David S. Lewis, Chief Development Officer for the Museum’s Capital Campaign, in announcing the contribution. “We appreciate the Northrop Grumman Foundation’s generosity. It’s an investment that amply reflects the strength of the continuing partnership between one of America’s preeminent industrial leaders and our Army, and will help ensure a lasting source of information on the contributions of our men and women of the Army.”
The Northrop Grumman Foundation’s contribution will be recognized in the Museum’s Five-Star Circle of Distinction reserved for donors of $1 million and more.
