Raytheon launches back-to-school „Pin It to Win It” contest

Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is helping teachers kick off the school year with a new „Pin It to Win It” sweepstakes on Pinterest that encourages knowledge sharing and promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education. Twenty-five winners will be randomly selected to receive a MathMovesU® bag loaded with classroom supplies, including calculators, rulers, protractors and compasses.

The contest is part of Raytheon’s MathMovesU initiative, which aims to inspire student interest in STEM subjects and support teachers by providing easy access to STEM education resources. According to Pinterest, more than 500,000 education-related ideas are pinned on boards each day.

To participate in the „Pin It to Win It” sweepstakes, teachers must create a back-to-school Pinterest board, re-pin and share creative STEM education content – including inventive experiments, lesson tips and other engaging ideas – to the MathMovesU „Back-to-School” Pinterest board. The contest runs from Thursday, Sept. 5, until Friday, Sept. 27, at noon ET. Official rules can be found on the MathMovesU Pinterest account.

Throughout the year, Raytheon provides teachers with additional resources that highlight key concepts in math and science, including STEM classroom guides, practice quizzes, worksheets and games. The resources are available at www.MathMovesU.com. In addition, MathMovesU shares a variety of STEM-related content — such as daily math challenge problems, fun math and science questions, and news articles — on social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Raytheon’s „Math Mysteries” animated video series invites students to tackle puzzling math problems and share their answers.
