As the founding and presenting host of the third USA Science & Engineering Festival, Lockheed Martin returns to the 2014 Festival with inspiring, hands-on exhibits designed to drive excitement in our next generation of engineers. The Lockheed Martin Experience promises to once again be a premier attraction at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, located in the nation's capital. The company will bring fresh exhibits to turn its space into an innovative engineering and technology exploratorium.

Don't miss out! Tickets are limited for the Festival's exciting X-STEM Extreme STEM Symposium set for April 24, 2014 in Washington, DC. Presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation and MedImmune, this unforgettable all-day event, replete with live demonstrations and hands-on workshops, will take you up close and personal with some of the most fascinating minds in science and technology today, including: Bernard Harris, MD, former NASA astronaut who became the first African American to walk in space; Nan Hauser, Ph.D., the groundbreaking marine scientist-conservationist who is on a global mission to save the endangered humpback whale; and Greg Gage, Ph.D., the iconoclastic neuroscientist who went on to found the highly popular Backyard Brains neuroscience website network for students!

With the bevy of excitement planned for the Festival Expo and its coinciding events, Washington, DC in April 2014 will be the hottest place in the nation for STEM inspiration in what can only be described as the "Super Bowl of STEM" -- and we want you to take advantage of it all! We've taken over the entire DC Convention Center to provide ample space for Organizations to host their own STEM professional development workshops and other events in the week leading up to the Expo. Don't miss out on the growing list of STEM events to coincide with the Festival, including the insightful U.S. News STEM Solutions Conference, and many more!

It's rated as the world's most-read science and technology weekly, and now New Scientist is returning as a Media Partner for Festival 2014 -- once again bringing science excitement to inquisitive minds! What makes New Scientist such a wildly popular publication and online resource worldwide for both scientists and non-scientists? Michael Reilly, Senior Technology Editor of New Scientist, provides insight!
