Scientific citizenship and STEM

Scientific citizenship is a key concept for Leonardo. It means sharing a heritage made up of skills, innovation and technology that can be utilised to serve the communities in which we operate.

It means setting ourselves side by side with the new generations to look into the future together and witness how important the STEM disciplines (Science, Technologies, Engineering and Mathematics) are to us at Leonardo. Indeed, they are at the core of our activity and our business, just like our people (69% of our employees hold degrees in these disciplines).

Scientific citizenship therefore means placing our technological passion at the centre, sharing it and adding to it through ongoing dialogue with the community, institutions, research centres and universities. 

It means chosing  an  approach to scientific disciplines that supports a multidisciplinary vision – often represented by the acronym STEAM in wich A stands for ARTS - where innovation, knowledge, creativity and imagination  are thoroughly combined through a merging process to jointly build the skills of the future.

Our commitment is to contribute to the UN 2030 Agenda Goals, especially to the 4th SDG in order to provide quality, fair and inclusive education  and learning opportunities for everyone, and to the 9th SDG in order to support technological skills in business by encouraging innovation and attracting people and resources for Research & Development.

STEM for Kids

Mathematics is child's play

Touch mathematics first-hand and experience what it is like to be inside a virtual wind tunnel. This is just one of the infinite number of possibilities offered by i.lab Matematica, which was founded in 2017 through the partnership between Leonardo and the Museum of Science and Technology of Milan.
