Watch to learn how our colleagues, through the Thermo Fisher Scientific STEM Education Programs, are promoting STEM education in the communities where we live and work.
At Thermo Fisher Scientific, we believe that any opportunity to work with students is an opportunity to ignite the spark that may inspire our next great thinkers and leaders. Fulfilling our Mission depends on developing bright young talent to push the boundaries of our existing technologies and innovate for the future.
That’s why our philanthropic efforts – many of which are done through the Thermo Fisher Foundation for Science – focus on providing financial, in-kind and volunteer support to promote STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education, and inspiring students to pursue careers in those critical areas.
We further our strategy through our:
Philanthropic Giving in Action
Team-building activities are building more than teams: From January to March, our teams packed 25,000 meals, 10,900 STEM-credible Safety Kits and 600 Cheeriodical gift boxes and built 24 bikes.
A festival of exploration: At the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering, participants completed three hands-on labs at the Thermo Fisher Scientific booth for a chance to explore inside a cell using virtual reality.
