  • DoDEA , Army Corps of Engineers Form STEM Partnership

ALEXANDRIA, VA -- The Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) are partnering to advance Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) in DoDEA classrooms around the world.

The initiative becomes official at a Partnership Agreement Signing Ceremony to be held on May 20, at 1 p.m., at Ashurst Elementary School located on Marine Corps Base Quantico.

The partnership is the first STEM initiative between the U.S. Army and DoDEA.  It leverages the missions, talents and resources of both DoDEA and USACE to advance STEM in elementary and secondary school curriculum.  The program will include the development of a specific civil works project or other USACE function that directly relates to DoDEA's K-12 STEM content and curriculum.  The USACE interns and DoDEA students will collaborate on projects and their efforts will culminate in a competition and awards ceremony held two times each school year.

Marilee Fitzgerald, DoDEA Director, expressed the enthusiasm and commitment of DoDEA's teachers and staff for the program.

"DoDEA is truly honored and grateful for the opportunity to partner with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to focus on preparing the next generation to develop the skills, capacity, flexibility and perseverance they will need to ensure our nation continues to be a world leader in the STEM fields," said Ms. Fitzgerald. This collaborative effort will form a team that will make an impact on the lives of our students, excite them about STEM's potential and inspire them to pursue a STEM-related career.  

We feel the USACE team is uniquely positioned from several aspects to help us maximize the benefits of this program," Ms. Fitzgerald added.  In addition to the USACE's expertise and talent in building and maintaining our Nation's infrastructure; researching and developing technology for our Armed Forces and using their engineering expertise to promote stability and improve quality of life, they are part of the fabric of DoDEA's mission.  They are deeply involved in the design and construction of our schools and the members of their team live and work in the communities where our schools operate," she said.

Commanding General and Chief of Engineers, Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick, echoed Ms. Fitzgerald's sentiments and emphasized USACE's vision for the program; the importance of the STEM partnership with DoDEA, and the opportunities it will provide for DoDEA students around the world.

"The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is excited about the partnership with DoDEA and our ability to leverage our scientists and engineers to provide STEM-related expertise to military children around the world. We are committed to teaming with others to strengthen STEM programs that inspire young people to pursue careers in these fields." 

The partnership's focus aligns with the White House and Department of Education's focus on educating global leaders and preparing students for STEM careers in the 21st Century global economy.  According to research performed by the Department of Education, careers in all STEM-related fields will increase 14% between now and 2020.  As the Department of Education Chart below indicates, even more job growth is expected in STEM-related fields such as mathematics, computer science, and biomedical fields.
