Honeywell expanded learning horizons for hundreds of children in China when it donated supplies and equipment for two new Honeywell Multimedia Learning Centers. The donation is part of the Honeywell Hometown Solutions
initiative to inspire students of all ages across the globe to study science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Asia Pacific President Steven Lien encourages the students to embrace Mongolia’s prosperous history but always look for ways to explore the outside world too.
“At Honeywell, innovative thinking is at the core of what we do, so we recognize that inspiring and preparing the next generation of science leaders from an early age is incredibly important for the future of our industry,” said Lien. “This year, we were delighted to bring Honeywell Hometown Solutions to Ordos, where we equipped students with multimedia learning tools that will support their STEM education and help inspire these young students to become future thinkers and leaders in the aviation industry.”
The two newest Honeywell Multimedia Learning Centers are equipped with 4,000 STEM-related books, 40 computers, two multi-media educational systems and other digital equipment. These tools will encourage STEM learning opportunities while empowering students to set goals to make a difference in the world.
The donation ceremony in September attracted important regional dignitaries including representatives from the Ordos Airport Administration Group and the China Civil Aviation Science Popularization Foundation. It was held at the Da Late Central Primary School in Da Late Village, Ordos City, Inner Mongolia, China.
Over the past eight years, Honeywell has donated 35,500 books, more than 150 computers and other multimedia educational tools to 23 schools in Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Yunan, Sichuan, Tibet in China and Lao Cai, Thanh Huo and Central Highland in Vietnam. More than 21,500 students in Asia Pacific have benefited from the program to date.
