Have you ever wondered about the lifestyle of cavemen and other evolutionary mysteries? What about the role of music in enhancing learning and creativity, or how the emerging frontier of biologically-inspired robotics stands to revolutionize our lives? These are just some of the questions that will be answered at the all-day X-STEM Extreme Symposium, Thursday, April 24 at the Washington, D.C. Convention Center with the groundbreaking innovators who are studying them!

This unforgettable all-day event, presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation and MedImmune, will give students, teachers and others the unforgettable opportunity to interact with a host of prominent leaders and pioneers in STEM, including space exploration, green technology, storm chasing, the science behind Hollywood TV and film stunts, oceanography, science policy making, nanotechnology, computer science, biomimicry, and biotech entrepreneurship pursuits.

Which is why we want to be sure you don't miss out on this exciting "limited tickets only" event. Note: Act now to obtain your tickets to the symposium by reading information at the bottom of this article.

Throughout the day at the symposium, elementary through high school students, teachers and others will have the chance to sit in on multiple engaging presentations, live demonstrations and hands-on workshops with experts.

Here is further information on just some of the trailblazers who are sure to inspire you at X-STEM Extreme:
