BAE FOCUS Program Open for Applications

The next session of BAE Systems’ FOCUS (Fostering Opportunities and Careers Utilizing STEM) program is beginning in April 2019!  The FOCUS program engages high school aged students in the Southern New Hampshire and Northern Massachusetts areas in activities to help promote interest in careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.  The FOCUS program creates hand-on learning experiences in different aspects of engineering (electrical, mechanical, and software) as well as project and finance management, communication skills, and teamwork.  

The Spring session begins on April 10, 2019 and runs through June 12th. Classes take place on Wednesday evenings from 6-8pm at BAE Systems (141 Canal Street, Nashua, NH).  Additional elective sessions will be held on Thursday, May 9th and Thursday, June 6th.  These elective sessions are not required, but further enhance the students’ experience in the program!  Please note, we do hold sessions during school vacation weeks.

BAE Systems is dedicated to helping our youth and community and please ask that any student applying must be willing to make the commitment to attend every session. Due to the nature of our business all students must also be U.S. citizens.  The students will need to bring a photo ID each week. Failure to do so will result in not being allowed into the BAE Systems Facility.

Please encourage your students to apply. Applications must be submitted via email to focus.nashua@baesystems.com no later than March 5, 2019.  The selected students will be notified no later than March 22nd
