As part of Keysight's Corporate Social Responsibility mission to Build a Better Planet, we focus on creating opportunities for today's students to engage with science, technology, enginerring, and math (STEM) education. Recognizing that all students do not have equal access to the same educational resources, we invest and engage in accessible STEM educational opportunities around the world to secure a future skilled workforce and empower creative solutions to next generation challenges. Our educational outreach is driven through our signature Keysight After School program as well as through strategic partnerships with organizations making an impact in communities around the world.
Keysight After School Program
Keysight After School is a hands-on STEM education program for students in Keysight communities around the world. The Keysight After School program provides the materials and lesson plans that employee volunteers then deliver in primary and secondary education settings. Keysight After School features several different hands-on electronics, physical and earth-science experiments designed as complete "programs-in-a-box" with all the materials needed for students to explore various STEM experiments.
After completing their experiments, Keysight After School participants are encouraged to take their finished project with them. This provides an opportunity for the students to continue learning the concepts presented, share the project with family and friends, or show it to their teachers.
Keysight After School is meant to supplement in-class STEM lessons and supports most international, federal and state science standards. While utilized mostly in a school setting, the program has also been presented in non-traditional venues such as community centers, museums, hospitals, and through non-governmental organizations.
In addition, the Keysight After School program creates opportunities for employee volunteerism. Keysight fully funds the program’s experiment kits and its delivery by employee volunteers, at no cost to the host organizations or participating students. We believe our greatest asset is our employee brainpower and encourage employees to share their passion for STEM in classrooms in their local community.
