“Science is the heart of innovation and innovation is the backbone of America’s economy. At DuPont, we are working to address the big challenges facing our world today by developing science-based solutions. We need great talent. We need children of every age to see the role they have in solving for the challenges of today and tomorrow, and how important a strong STEM education is for our nation.”
At DuPont, we believe that a quality education system strengthens our schools, communities and our businesses. STEM education is a key component of a quality education. The Commitment to Excellence is a pledge to ensure that all children in communities across the U.S. have access to high quality STEM learning opportunities.
