Tennessee Valley Chapter supports project lead the way.

In response to the National Defense Industrial Association's emphasis on promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics in educational settings, the Tennessee Valley Chapter has become a platinum benefactor for Project Lead the Way, in the Huntsville City School System Academy of Applied Math and Science. For the past 10 years the chapter has supported programs covering elementary .school through postgraduate studies.

This program initiated at Virgil I. Grissom High School is a pilot for Project Lead the Way in North Alabama. The chapter's $25,000 donation is expected to help Project Lead the Way become a standard throughout the many high schools in the Tennessee Valley area.

The program encourages hands-on problem solving activities. Studies indicate that participants have significantly increased interest and abilities in STEM related programs at the college level.
