Supporting STEAM Careers

Wood Rodgers, Inc. launched the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math) Team Community Action Program in 2019. The Community Action Program is a way for Wood Rodgers employees to support their local communities through hands-on volunteering and financial support.

STEAM Team Consists of the Following Tiers: Volunteering, Sponsorships, and Partnerships.

Each tier provides paths for Wood Rodgers to support local students, educators, and organizations to encourage and stimulate STEAM careers.

Tier 1

Looking for engineers and other STEAM professionals to lend a helping hand (both virtually and in-person)  with STEAM-related classroom activities, workshops, career fairs, and more? Our STEAM Team members are happy to help!

Tier 2

If you are part of a STEM- or STEAM-related non-profit organization in need of financial support, we would love to sponsor you! Let’s work together to make STEAM more affordable and accessible for our local communities.

Tier 3

Are you searching for long-term volunteers and sponsorships? Our Partnerships Tier offers both! We’ll work with you to create specific curriculum for your students, and provide the tools they need for success in STEAM.

Thank you so much! I am the STEM for an entire elementary school and I am forever grateful for generous people like you! I have 300 of the most amazing future scientists and engineers you will ever meet! I teach everyone from the Kindergarten classes to the 5th graders and they all show a love for STEM! Because of you, my students are able to learn about electronic systems! I can not tell you how excited they were when I opened the boxes and showed them what you gave to our class! We haven't completed the robots yet but, they will be done very soon! Thanks again for choosing my students!
