August 25, 2014
Honeywell is helping more than 1,200 students in Indonesia learn about science and technology through a partnership with local schools in Batam and Bintan in Riau Islands province.
Under the Honeywell Science kits program, four schools will receive science kits supporting the national curriculum. These comprehensive tools will allow students to experience science and technology concepts in an innovative way. 12 teachers will be trained with hands-on teaching techniques, enabling them to better engage their students in the classroom. In addition to that, 12 engineers from local Honeywell facility are volunteering to promote science and technology careers at these local schools.
The program is part of Honeywell’s ongoing commitment to promote science and technology education in Indonesia which includes sponsoring middle school math and science teachers to attend its international programs such as Honeywell Educators @ Space Academy and Green Boot Camp to learn advanced teaching techniques. This new science kits program is sponsored by Honeywell Hometown Solutions, the company’s global citizenship initiative.
