As a pioneering leader in the application of new science and technological solutions, LGS Innovations understands the vital need to link today’s STEM classroom curricula to impactful careers. We promote STEM education programs in many ways, including scholarships, paid internships, and financial support for employees engaged in volunteer STEM programs in their communities.
LGS Innovations is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor at the fourth annual K-12 STEM Symposium hosted by WashingtonExec at the NySmith School for the Gifted in Herndon, Virginia, on Saturday, March 25. The K-12 STEM Symposium is a free, exciting, interactive forum that engages children, parents, teachers, and representatives from corporate, government, academia, and nonprofit organizations who have a vested interest in the Washington D.C.-area STEM pipeline.
At this year’s Symposium, elementary, middle, and high school students will learn about computer and robotics programming, 3D printing, drones, connected cars, healthcare, and other topics through a wide range of fun and interactive exhibitors and speakers.
In addition to serving as the lead sponsor of this year’s STEM Symposium, LGS speakers will address topics including STEM Workforce Needs and Solutions, Opportunities in STEM, and more alongside fighter pilots, astronauts, and politicians. Our scientists and program managers will also present a series of interactive demonstrations including breaking wine glasses, virtual reality, fun with liquid nitrogen, and many others across the fields of sound/radio waves, video, and robotics.
“We’re excited and honored to be the lead sponsor of this year’s K-12 STEM Symposium,” says LGS CEO Kevin Kelly. “When it comes to ensuring our nation’s continued leadership in science and engineering, it takes a village—and it starts early. We’re proud to support STEM initiatives here in the D.C. area and in other communities where LGS offices are located across the country.”
