Sponsor Spotlights for STEM Camps 2014: Corporate Focus

If you’ve ever used something that requires a memory, like your phone or camera, then it’s likely that Micron is part of your life. Micron is SySTEMic Solutions’ industry champion and has been actively involved in supporting our programs through the Micron Foundation since SySTEMic Solutions began in 2010.
Founded in 1978, Micron is a global leader in the semiconductor industry.
Their team of dreamers, visionaries, and scientists have redefined innovation—designing and building some of the world’s most advanced memory and semiconductor technologies.

This best-in-class technology powers leading-edge computing, consumer, enterprise server and storage, networking, embedded, automotive, industrial, and mobile products. As the only U.S. based DRAM (Dynamic Random Access Memory) manufacturer, Micron leverages an expansive global footprint and proven technology leadership to make it easier for customers to try new things and gain competitive advantages in their markets.

Micron offers a full range of memory products through their consumer brands, Crucial (SSDs and DRAM) and Lexar (high- performance memory cards, card readers, and USB storage solutions), which are available worldwide at leading retail stores, online, and through commercial resellers.


Endowed with gifts from Micron Technology, Inc., the Micron Technology Foundation’s mission is to develop effective programs that promote math, science, and engineering education and to participate in activities that address the priorities and concerns of the communities where Micron employees live and work. SySTEMic Solutions and Northern Virginia have benefited greatly from the Micron Foundation’s vital support.

At SySTEMic Solutions we inspire young minds in STEM with many innovative STEM programs that include TARC Rocketry camps. The excitement of launching model rockets hundreds of feet in the air is the genesis of space exploration and national defense. One of our STEM Camp sponsors, Aerojet Rocketdyne, is a corporation where those dreams are realized.


Aerojet Rocketdyne is a world‐recognized aerospace and defense leader providing propulsion and energetics to the space, missile defense, strategic, tactical missile and armaments areas in support of domestic and international markets. Since the company was founded in 1942, it has led the way in the development of crucial technology and products that have kept America strong and furthered human's exploration of space. From keeping allied pilots safe with JATO technology in WWII, trailblazing the space race in the 50’s and 60’s, energizing the Space Shuttle era, to powering unmanned Mars landings and forging technology for Orion, the next generation crew space exploration vehicle, Aerojet Rocketdyne’s vision, innovation, and expertise is at the forefront of these monumental developments.

SySTEMic Solutions is proud to be sponsored by Aerojet Rocketdyne and share its vision for the possibilities of STEM.
