    • STEM education: outreach activities for students from elementary school through college; support may be provided for projects, events, and campaigns that focus on student achievement, teacher development, and gender and ethnic diversity
    • Military and veteran support: projects that provide military and veteran support, assistance to military members and their families, empower veterans in transition, and honor the legacy of all veterans.

    • A pilot program that connects Lockheed Martin volunteers with girls ages 9-12 to strengthen their interest and confidence in pursuing STEM education and careers
