REGISTRATION CLOSED ON APRIL 11
Register below to attend the X-STEM Extreme STEM Symposium – presented by Northrop Grumman Foundation and MedImmune! The X-STEM Symposium is a unique opportunity for students interested in STEM to get up close and personal with science and technology role models in a conference-style setting.
As an X-STEM attendee, you can customize your X-STEM experience by selecting the talks and workshops – from over 60 STEM mentors and industry leaders - that you are most interested in. X-STEM Talks will feature inspiring speakers giving 20 minute talks to students in a theater-style setting while X-STEM Workshops will offer a more hands-on experience for smaller groups and will take place in either 30 or 60 minute intervals.
Advanced registration is required. There will be no onsite registration.

X-STEM Symposium Agenda
When registering for the X-STEM Symposium, you will be asked to select the talks and workshops you would like to reserve seats for. Click here to view the full X-STEM Symposium Agenda. Please make note of the talks or workshops you would like to attend in advance of submitting your registration.
Each X-STEM talk will feature two complimentary, back to back speakers. By signing up for a talk, you are committing to stay for BOTH speakers. To avoid disruption to the speaker and audience, please plan to stay for the entire duration of your registered talks. Each speaker will provide a 20 minute talk followed by a brief Q&A session.
For groups, please plan to attend all talks and workshops as a group. By selecting a talk or workshop on the registration form, you will be reserving seats for your entire group. You will not have the ability to register subgroups for different talks during a single session.
Additional Important Information
We will not have a formal lunch hour or scheduled breaks, but we will offer designated eating areas within the event area. Please consider building in time for breaks and lunch when planning your day. Attendees may bring their own lunch or purchase food from convention center vendors. Healthy lunch options will be available for approximately $10. All food should be consumed within designated eating areas at the event.
No Refund Policy
X-STEM tickets are non-refundable. The USA Science & Engineering Festival reserves the right to revise the X-STEM event agenda and list of participating speakers. Attendees will have the opportunity to register for seats at specific talks and we will do our best to accommodate those requests. In the event that a speaker becomes unable to participate, attendees registered for that speaker will be reassigned to an alternate talk.
