The GenCorp Foundation (the charitable giving arm of Aerojet) has contributed $2,500 to establish the Aerojet Scholarship Fund for Splash Field Trips. Aerojet is offering field trip scholarships for students participating in the Splash Elementary Program who are unable to afford the modest, sliding-scale fees.
One of Splash’s core goals is to help disadvantaged youth develop a passion for science through the study of nature. These students are traditionally the most difficult to reach, yet outdoor exploration and environmental education are particularly critical for them because they are less likely to receive them at home.
The GenCorp Foundation supports the communities where Aerojet employees live, work and volunteer. The GenCorp Foundation primary giving focus is education, specifically science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), to help develop the next generation of ‘rocket scientists’.
While the GenCorp Foundation’s primary focus is STEM education, it is also interested in environmental issues and stewardship efforts. Splash programming integrates science education and environmental awareness, making it a natural partner for Aerojet and the GenCorp Foundation. Splash looks forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the folks at Aerojet!
