2014 USA Science & Engineering Festival

USA Science and Engineering Festival

Lockheed Martin is proud to be the founding and presenting host of the USA Science & Engineering Festival.

The USA Science & Engineering Festival is a national grassroots effort to advance STEM education and inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers. 

Founded in 2010 by Larry Bock and Lockheed Martin Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Dr. Ray O. Johnson, the biennial USA Science & Engineering Festival has become the world’s largest STEM event. In 2012, more than 250,000 participants attended the festival and more than 350,000 are expected to attend this year.

The third festival will take place April 25-27, 2014 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, D.C. As the founding and presenting sponsor, Lockheed Martin will showcase exciting and innovative work and products in its 56,000 square feet exhibit space.
