ROCKVILLE, Md., Oct. 8, 2013 – Lockheed Martin [NYSE: LMT] has joined forces with the new LifeJourneyTM mentoring program to inspire the nation’s youth to consider careers in cyber security and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields. Lockheed Martin experts in data scientology and cyber architecture are serving as LifeJourney mentors to help students understand the interesting opportunities and the skills necessary to get internships and future jobs in related professions.

LifeJourney will debut at the 2013 Cyber Maryland Conference on Oct. 8 in Baltimore, Md. More information about the program can be found on the LifeJourney website.
