Beginning its ninth consecutive year of partnership with the USS Midway Museum, Booz Allen Hamilton will continue to focus its support on Midway’s education programs in 2023, including offering scholarships for Title I schools to participate in the museum’s STEM education programs and development of “maker space” project kits for STEM students.

With Booz Allen’s support, Midway has begun developing a series of project kits for students attending Midway electricity programs. The kits will be a follow-up lesson activity to students’ onboard experience, providing components and instructions students can keep and use to build electrical circuits reinforcing the STEM principles learned during their time on the ship.

Also with Booz Allen’s support, and in an effort to leverage the rich knowledge base of Booz Allen employees, Midway is developing a series of volunteer opportunities designed to connect students with STEM professionals who demonstrate the application of these principles in their daily work lives, connecting what the students are learning to potential career opportunities. 

 Booz Allen’s commitment this year will underwrite scholarships for roughly 750 San Diego students from Title I schools and classrooms in underserved communities who would like to participate in STEM education field trip experiences.

“Booz Allen is proud to support the Midway’s STEM programs and to make those impactful educational experiences accessible to students in Title I schools,” said Jennie Brooks, executive vice president at Booz Allen Hamilton. “Programs such as the Midway’s No Child Left Ashore scholarship program and Booz Allen Foundation grants and initiatives make unique and inspiring STEM programs accessible to a broader population of San Diego students. We are thrilled to support Midway’s new STEM kits so that students will continue to be engaged and learning even after they’ve disembarked. My Booz Allen colleagues look forward to amplifying the impact of these programs through mentorship with the students and sharing their experiences, expertise, and love for STEM.”

Booz Allen’s partnership with Midway has always been about developing and supporting educational opportunities and strengthening Midway’s impact in the community. In nine years of partnership Booz Allen has contributed more than half a million dollars and innovative programming to support Midway’s education programs. 

The relationship between Booz Allen and Midway is one of shared values and commitment to service. Booz Allen Hamilton was founded by a veteran, has continuously supported the military since working with the Department of Defense in 1940, and nearly one-third of the firm’s employees are military-connected, including veterans, National Guard members, reservists, and their spouses.
