Making an Impact in our Community
Community service and educational outreach are important to us. Our outreach programs are motivated by the desire of our employees to help people in need and to encourage students' interest and participation in engineering and science.
Beaver Works Summer Institute
The Beaver Works Summer Institute is a transformational STEM experience, using project-based, workshop-style programs for rising high school seniors. We also work with public schools and teachers conducting STEM courses for their students.
G.I.R.L. - Girls' Innovation Research Lab
G.I.R.L. provides hands-on activities to make electronics and programming accessible to middle school girls.
Girls Who Build Wearable Technology ─ Online Course
The Girls Who Build Wearable Technology online course guides students on how to use computer science, electrical engineering, and mechanical engineering to make their own wearable technology.
LLCipher workshop is a one-week program that introduces high school students to cryptography, an approach to securing data.
Robotics: FIRST Technical Challenge (FTC)
FIRST Tech Challenge is a national robotics program for students in grades 7–12 who are interested in building and programming their own robot from a kit and then testing it in competition against other teams.
Robotics: FIRST LEGO League
Guided by coaches, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League robotics teams (made up of students in grades 4–8) research a real-world problem, such as food safety, recycling, or energy, and are challenged to develop a solution. Students also build a robot from a Lego kit and learn how to program it to complete specific obstacles.
Robotics: FIRST LEGO League Jr.
FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics offers FIRST LEGO League Jr. programs to students aged 6 to 10.
Lincoln Laboratory volunteers help scouting groups obtain STEM-related badges, or help direct activities for Venture Crew or Explorer Post groups in their pursuit of science and engineering.
