Raytheon and the New England Patriots Announce Winners of "Science of Sports" Science Fair

Posted May 5, 2013

Raytheon Chairman and CEO William H. Swanson, The Kraft Group Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, and New England Patriots left tackle Nate Solder determine top three teams

FOXBOROUGH, Mass., (May 5, 2013) – Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) and the New England Patriots today celebrated the fifth annual “Science of Sports” Science Fair at Gillette Stadium, awarding scholarships to the participants of the three teams that best demonstrated the principles of math and science in sports: Swing Masters from Nashua, N.H., Catapult Court CEOs from Hudson, Mass., and GPA 1 from Lawrence, Mass. Since 2009, Raytheon and the Patriots have partnered to present this science fair that encourages Boys and Girls Club members from across New England to imagine and execute projects that explore math and science as they relate to the sports they love.

More than 130 middle school students participated on the 24 teams, representing Boys and Girls Clubs from 17 communities across Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. The five-month-long program was supported by 73 Raytheon employee mentors. The teams competed to present their projects to a panel of executive judges including Raytheon Chairman and CEO William H. Swanson, The Kraft Group Chairman and CEO Robert Kraft, and Patriots left tackle Nate Solder.

Each member of the top three winning teams earned a $1,000 (Grand Prize), $750 (Second Place) or $500 (Third Place) scholarship provided by Raytheon and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation. The scholarships can be used for “camperships” applied to a science, technology, engineering or math-related summer camp or to their freshman year in postsecondary school.

“This is the fifth year we have partnered with Raytheon to host the ‘Science of Sports’ Science Fair. With more students and mentors than we’ve ever had, the theories and creativity of the projects continue to impress me each year,” said Kraft. “Raytheon continues to be one of the most innovative companies in the world with a strong focus on philanthropy. Each year, Bill Swanson provides dozens of Raytheon volunteers to meet and mentor youth at Boys and Girls Clubs throughout the region. Through this program, students learn about teamwork while applying science in a real-life setting. One of my favorite parts of this program is hearing the teams present their projects and seeing the pride they take in the work they have accomplished. Each year, it is exciting to see this program inspire these young people and we hope it encourages them to continue to set and achieve goals through science in the future.”

“Congratulations to all of the students who participated and presented some very impressive science projects,” said Raytheon Chairman and CEO William H. Swanson. “I am pleased that our partners, the New England Patriots and the Kraft family, continue to share our passion for improving math and science education. After five years of judging the science projects of nearly 450 students, Robert Kraft and I clearly see that with the right resources and committed volunteers, we can spark a love of science in a new generation of students who we hope will be inspired to make a career in science, technology, engineering and math.”

The “Science of Sports” Science Fair program is part of Raytheon’s MathMovesU® program designed to increase students’ interest in math and science education. The science fair is a key component of the partnership between Raytheon and the New England Patriots initiated in September 2008 with the opening of The Hall at Patriot Place presented by Raytheon. Interactive exhibits in The Hall are designed to showcase how math and science are essential to the fundamentals of football. The Hall’s education program aligns with the goal of inspiring an appreciation for science, technology, engineering and mathematics for visiting school groups.

Teams from Boys & Girls Club locations in the following communities participated in the 2013 “Science of Sports” Science Fair: Billerica, Mass., Brockton, Mass., Charlestown, Mass., Dorchester, Mass., Hudson, Mass., Lawrence, Mass., Leominster, Mass., Lowell, Mass., Marlborough, Mass., Marshfield, Mass., Nashua, N.H., Newport, R.I., Portsmouth, R.I., Roxbury, Mass., Salem, N.H., Waltham, Mass., and Woburn, Mass.
