The General Atomics Sciences Education Foundation has been actively involved in improving K-12 science and engineering education since 1992 by providing outreach support to GA employees, funding STEM non-profit organizations, and developing educational resources.
The Foundation supports employees to engage in education outreach via the GASSSS program, where they can receive a charge number for up to 8 hours as well as reimbursement for up to $500 in STEM purchases per calendar year. For additional information, see the GASSSS Details and Application Form on the GASSSS web site.
If you are a GA employee and want to participate in education outreach but don’t know where to start, click here.
If you are a teacher or science educator and would like a GA employee to work with your class/school/program, you can place your request on the GASSSS Matchmaker site or you can contact Dr. Larry Woolf to communicate your request to GA employees.
