Lockheed Martin Celebrates National Engineers Week
Lockheed Martin Co-Chairs 2013 National Engineers Week
The National Engineers Week Foundation, a Lockheed Martin partner in advocating for the future of the engineering profession, will focus around the Foundation’s signature program, National Engineers Week, February 17-23.
Lockheed Martin is proud to co-chair this year’s National Engineers Week (E-Week) with the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) in supporting the E-Week mission to champion the positive contributions engineers make to society and act as a catalyst for encouraging students to focus on careers in engineering. The theme of this year’s E-Week, Celebrate Awesome, spotlights the truly remarkable work that engineers, engineering students and technicians do every day to make the world a better place.
Over the past year, Lockheed Martin has marked a celebration of its own: that of its centennial birthday. Under the banner of “100 Years of Accelerating Tomorrow,” the company has reflected on engineering excellence of its workforce, and more broadly, how engineering has contributed to our shared economic growth, quality of life and national security. E-Week offers us all the opportunity to reflect on and take pride in our nation’s impressive engineering legacy and to translate that pride into action, inspiring us to do our part to cultivate the next generation of engineering talent.
Lockheed Martin’s participation includes activities designed to inspire and engage students, involve dedicated employee volunteers, and honor our outstanding engineers for their contributions to Lockheed Martin and the community.
Throughout National Engineers Week, Lockheed Martin will:
- Conduct tours and demonstrations for visiting school groups
- Host on-site student competitions
- Sponsor local E-Week events
With an employee base that includes more than 60,000 engineers, scientists, and IT professionals, Lockheed Martin is dedicated to expanding our nation’s technical workforce pipeline. We believe that the collective energy, creativity, and resources of our community will make a world of difference for championing the “E for Engineering” in STEM.
Led by Lockheed Martin volunteers, students are experienced engineering activities such as paper airplane contests and flight simulators.
