Through its longstanding relationship with LEF and LCPS, AWS helps advance STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) education and provides weekend meal bags to students in need so they show up to class ready to learn and succeed. Through its AWS Think Big Space, students explore hands-on technical education and cloud computing training and educators receive professional development to allow them to further integrate STEAM into K-8 instruction. AWS supported the high school curriculum by establishing a pilot Computer Science Cloud Computing course. Amazon also supports LEF through Amazon Local Good (ALG) which has delivered over 250,000 essential food items to date to support LEF’s FuelED program. Each week, ALG delivers nearly 1,000 meal bags each week to 35-40 schools as part of Amazon’s broader commitment to addressing food security issues.
