Rockwell Scientific Awarded for Supporting Education in Ventura County

Reflects Progressive Attitude Toward Education

THOUSAND OAKS, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 4, 2005 -- On April 29, the city of Camarillo's Chamber of Commerce presented Rockwell Scientific Company (RSC) with the Business Supporting Education Award. Derek Cheung, President and Chief Executive Officer of RSC, accepted the honor at the Sixth Annual Business and Legislator's Forum held at Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo, California.

RSC supports several educational programs for local schools and universities, but their most rewarding program for the past 27 years has been the Youth Motivation Program (YMP). Rockwell's YMP is a truly innovative concept that takes high school seniors and provides them with hands-on experience working in a technology company. Students are handed research projects, while under the tutelage of premier scientists and engineers. "It is important that companies play an active role in supporting and improving education in our schools. We need to nurture the young minds of the next great leaders and technologists," said Derek Cheung. Rockwell Scientific has been conducting the YMP with area schools since 1977.
