Career Communications Group (CCG) took part in the 5th annual USA Science & Engineering Festival April 7-8 in Washington, DC.
A leader in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) diversity, CCG was a 2016 Nobelium sponsor of the USA Science & Engineering Festival.
“We’re excited to support the USA Science & Engineering Festival, as it greatly aligns with our mission of sharing the importance and benefits of STEM education,” said CEO of Career Communications Group Tyrone Taborn. “CCG encourages others to attend the festival and witness the array of activities that inspire and build an interest in STEM.”
This year, the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo, presented by Lockheed Martin, asked Where Can STEM Take You?.
Conference attendees explored over 3,000 hands-on activities showcasing how STEM Can Take You into the deep blue, into cyberspace, into the human body, into nature, into outer space and beyond!
Designed to inspire the next generation of inventors, creators and innovators, the festival is a free, family-friendly expo that allows kids and adults to participate in thousands of exhibits, experiments, and live performances by science celebrities, explorers, astronauts, physicists, inventors, and experts in fields like oceanography, climatology, robotics, medical research, neuroscience, space exploration, artificial intelligence, and more.
The festival kicked off on April 5 with the X-STEM Extreme STEM Symposium—presented by PwC and NCR—a “TED-style” event, geared towards middle and high school students, featuring interactive presentations and workshops by STEM visionaries.
Founded by entrepreneur Larry Bock and Lockheed Martin executives to address the severe shortage in science and tech talent, the USA Science & Engineering Festival is the country’s only national science festival, and was developed to increase public awareness of the importance of science and to encourage youth to pursue careers in science and engineering by celebrating science in much the same way as society celebrates Hollywood celebrities, professional athletes, and pop stars.
