From AZ Ed News:

Raytheon Company recently funded a $37,000 grant to help teach engineering concepts and practices to students at schools in Arizona. The grant is part of a $2 million Raytheon initiative to help improve STEM education nationwide by expanding the use of Engineering is Elementary (EiE), an award-winning curriculum developed at the Museum of Science, Boston. Each teacher that is funded by the grant attends workshops to prepare them to use EiE with their students and also receives a curriculum guide and materials kit. To date, EiE has reached more than 4.5 million children, engaging students with hands-on, inquiry-based activities. The curriculum explores a variety of engineering fields—from electrical to mechanical to biomechanical.
