Inquisitive scientific minds have kept Honeywell humming for more than 125 years, so we understand the importance of inspiring and preparing the next generation of science and math leaders. Our innovative educational programs have delivered real results, touching the lives of thousands of future scientists, technology innovators, and engineers.
Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy
This week-long event is a unique opportunity for the children of Honeywell employees to develop their leadership skills through science-oriented workshops, lectures and team exercises. Working in partnership with the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Ala., this program teaches the critical leadership skills all kids need to succeed, including communication, teamwork, critical thinking, and problem-solving. Designed for high school students’ careers in science, technology, engineering, or math, the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy has helped more than 1,750 students from 59 countries and 40 states and territories build the leadership skills they’ll need to succeed in college, careers and life.
Honeywell Initiative for Science & Engineering (HISE)
The Honeywell Initiative for Science and Engineering (HISE) encourages university students to pursue careers in science by giving them early exposure to the world’s most brilliant scientific minds. We partner with universities worldwide so students can interact with and learn from Nobel laureates and Honeywell fellows on the role of practical engineering—but more importantly to learn how developing important innovations can make a real difference to humankind.
Honeywell Educators at Space Academy
We created the Honeywell Educators at Space Academy scholarship program in partnership with the U.S. Space and Rocket Center to provide middle school science and math teachers from around the world with a unique opportunity to learn about space-exploration at a week-long astronaut training program in Huntsville, Alabama. Thanks in part to the financial support of Honeywell employees, nearly 2,600 teachers from 56 countries and all 52 U.S. states and territories have attended this innovative science, technology, engineering, and math educational program. Teachers participate in 45 hours of classroom, laboratory, and training time focused specifically on science and space exploration. They learn new teaching practices in education and have the ability to link all activities to professional development credits. The difference that this makes in the lives of their students is invaluable, bringing passion, experience and expertise to the classroom.
Created by Honeywell and NASA, FMA Live! is an award-winning, hip-hop science education program designed to get elementary and middle school students excited about science and math by teaching Sir Isaac Newton’s Three Laws of Motion in an innovative, entertaining and memorable way. To date, the FMA Live! tour has traveled more than 110,000 miles, covering 48 U.S. states, Mexico and Canada, sharing its message with more than 460,000 students in more than 1,200 schools. We are inspiring a new generation of kids across North America with a love for math and science today so they can create and lead a better tomorrow.
