Welcome to the newly redesigned web site of the General Atomics (GA) Sciences Education Foundation! The Foundation has been actively involved in improving K-12 science education since 1992 by developing educational resources and by providing support to both employees of the GA family of companies via the GASSSS program as well as to area non-profit organizations.

Congratulations to the following GA employees who have recently completed a GASSSS activity: Chau Nguyen, Don Czechowicz, Kayla Phan, Michael Allwein, Yangyang Yu, Tony Kwan, Shaun Williams, Jeff Warren, J. Rauch, Victoria Wilson, Jay Zhang, Michael Deshler, Heidi DeClue, Aubry Harris, Gideon Prior, Rick Wilkinson.

Speakers are requested for the STEM Engineering program at Mt. Carmel High School and for the Project Lead the Way engineering high school program in the Hemet Unified School District. The Preuss school FIRST robotics club at UCSD is looking for mentors. If interested, see the GA Sciences Education Foundation GASSSS Matchmaker site for contact details and further information.

GA employees can contribute their expertise and enthusiasm for science and engineering by participating in the GASSSS program. The Foundation will reimburse the employee for associated material purchases.

GA scientists have developed education modules, education presentations, hands-on materials, posters, and have published articles.

The Foundation provides a limited number of grants, mostly to regional science related non-profits.  Guidelines for requesting support are provided here.

If you are an employee of GA, you can support the Foundation via the United Way campaign, or the GA PAC. You can also support the Foundation by sending us a check.
