Partners in Education

The Partners in Education (PIE) program demonstrates NGA’s commitment to advancing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education in local schools throughout the Springfield, Virginia and St. Louis communities. The PIE program is also committed to being a good neighbor to the communities adjacent to our facilities and showcasing the world-class talent of NGA’s employees.

NGA employees make a difference by representing NGA through the PIE program and by offering assistance to local schools and students. Some NGA PIE briefings are available under associated documents.
