In December 2011, Aerojet became the first title sponsor of the planned Powerhouse Science Center ( www.powerhousesciencecenter.org ), the new home of the Discovery Museum Science & Space Center set to break ground later in 2013 and open its doors in 2015.

"Aerojet's unique partnership with the Discovery Museum goes back more than 17 years and highlights the company's continuing commitment to STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) education and to the Sacramento community," said Aerojet President Warren M. Boley, Jr. "The new Powerhouse Science Center will be a science and technology jewel for the region and I'm excited about the huge impact our expanded, high-tech Challenger Learning Center will make in inspiring future generations."

"Since 1997, Aerojet has taken the lead role in supporting our highly successful Challenger Learning Center," said Michele Wong, board president of Powerhouse Science Center. "Their longstanding support and generosity makes a positive impact on the quality of STEM education throughout our region."
