STEM is important to Ford. We offer STEM experiences in combination with other programs, such as FIRST Robotics and High School Science and Technology Program, designed to deliver opportunities to interested students and recent graduates. We aim to engage young people in understanding Ford is a technology company that offers rewarding careers in STEM fields.
Ford wants to inspire students to pursue STEM-related education. As we transform into a technology company, our employees of the future will need to bring experience and expertise in STEM disciplines. With this talent in high demand, we want to attract top talent candidates.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We have supported STEM education and programs for more than 20 years. Our goal is to get students interested in and inspired by STEM-related projects, to focus on activities that build relationships, and to engage in programs that provide mentorship opportunities.
Safe Haven Defense
Safe Haven Defense manufactures a Security Laminate that offers superior protection against glass breakage due to burglaries, hurricanes, bombs and even bullets.
Unlike most competing products, Safe Haven Defense laminates are applied onsite to existing windows in commercial, municipal and residential buildings, with virtually no disruption to business activity. No Special Modifications or retrofitting is required. Similarly, vehicle protection is increasing in demand and Safe Haven Defense has developed a process to armor vehicles at a fraction of the cost and weight when compared to traditional uparmoring.
Safe Haven Defense incorporates all aspects of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. We utilize understanding of physics and mathematical formulas to stop projectiles from penetrating glass based on their velocities and mass. Safe Haven Defense is founded on the STEM principals of continuing to investigate new theories, working to better understand and improve our products and capabilities of protection.
