LGS Innovations (Booth 344) for the second year donated $7,500 to USGIF’s EdGEOcation Giving Fund. The fund supports USGIF’s K-12 educational outreach program, which helps the Foundation create and provide GEOINT learning materials for classrooms, sponsor STEM events, judge science fairs, donate materials to underserved schools, and much more. All this is done with the goal to introduce students to STEM fields and get them interested in the geospatial sciences at an early age.

“Science and technology innovation is our life blood at LGS,” said Ray Ivie, president of integration and operations solutions for LGS Innovations. “Like most companies in the U.S., it has become more challenging to find and compete for STEM-educated young people. Therefore, we strongly support investment in programs like USGIF’s. We chose to support the USGIF EdGEOcation Giving Fund so that we can be directly involved with their mission of bringing hands-on STEM initiatives to classrooms to spark interest in young students toward STEM education and careers.”

LGS presented a check to the USGIF Board of Directors during a luncheon Monday at GEOINT 2018 in Tampa, Fla.
