Between workplace events for employees and their families to recognize National Aerospace Week in September, the staff of Harris Corp., a communications and IT company for the aerospace industry, has been celebrating by teaching science to school children—including their own kids.
The 16,000-employee, Melbourne, Fla.-based company hosted a student essay competition for the children of Harris employees. It also sent employees to elementary and middle schools in Florida, Colorado and Washington, D.C., to teach the basic principles of space science and aerodynamics. Some of the students got to spend time in a space mission simulator computer lab.
