ASML was honored at the recent CT STEM Fair, held last week by the Connecticut STEM Foundation. The Wilton-based global company is at the forefront of technical innovation for the semiconductor industry and has a longstanding relationship with the state of Connecticut supporting STEM education and creating opportunities for students.
This year, the CT STEM Foundation Board of Directors presented ASML and Joel Barlow High School science teacher Katherine Nuzzo with the Paul Heilman Award for continued support of STEM engagement across the state of Connecticut
with the ASML4Kids program, and the regular support of the annual CT STEM Fair.
Michael Opuszynski–group lead of the Hardware and Test Center for ASML, and president and chair of the CT STEM Foundation board–accepted the award on behalf of Nuzzo and ASML.
During his acceptance, Opuszynski said, “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields are critical to the success of Connecticut’s economy. The mission of the Connecticut STEM Foundation, Inc., and the reason I was inspired to join, is to create engagement opportunities in STEM fields, across our diverse population. Specifically our CT STEM Fair offers an opportunity for high school students to directly engage with people currently working in these fields, and share genuine research and ideas, ultimately cultivating Connecticut’s future STEM workforce. ASML, which has deep roots in Connecticut, recognizes and supports this engagement as an opportunity to break down barriers for those interested in participating in STEM.”
