STEM Symposium March 8 in Herndon

Washington Exec is hosting a STEM Symposium ( to be held on March 8th, 2014 in Herndon, Va. 

The forum's mission is twofold:

To provide an opportunity for K-12 students in the National Capital Region (NCR) to showcase their achievements in STEM, and to interact with key business, education, non-profit and government leaders through real-life applications and presentations about how science, technology, engineering and math impacts our community.

From an industry leader perspective, professionals will have the opportunity to share their insights with students, inspire students to pursue STEM, and gauge the STEM proficiency of their prospective pipeline.

Continue below to read about Goals and Registration.

Goals for the event:

1. Allow industry and government representatives to elaborate on what they need from the STEM pipeline.
2. Provide a space for students and parents to learn from industry and government leaders about future opportunities available to their students, and suggest potential academic paths for achieving particular STEM goals.
3. Empower students to showcase past and current projects in a space conducive to praise as well as to constructive criticism; and then allow industry representatives to assist in explaining the ways in which industry support could facilitate the project.
4. Facilitate interaction between students and industry to ultimately encourage the fostering of "mentor" type relationships between the two groups.

Don't miss this unique educational opportunity to get up-close-and-personal with some of the area's most noted STEM professionals - representing corporations, non-profit organizations and governmental agencies for an all-day interactive symposium.
