Lockheed Martin employees gather for a group shot at a previous Colorado Engineering Festival.

For the 5th consecutive year, Lockheed Martin will support the Colorado Engineering Festival in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Starting with one high school through Project Lead the Way, this STEM event has expanded to include schools, universities and industry from throughout the state. This year, more than 80 companies will attend the festival along with universities and trade schools showcasing engaging STEM curriculum. Support of the festival is one part of the company’s more than 50-year commitment to the Colorado Springs Community. Lockheed Martin’s exhibits at the festival will include information on GPS, Orion, scientific exploration in Antarctica and the NASCAR Green program.

Lockheed Martin is committed to programs that educate and inspire tomorrow’s scientists, engineers and mathematicians. To remain competitive, the United States must recognize this gap and emphasize the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).  We also must inspire students to pursue these disciplines, which are critical to our national security and economic strength. From advancing science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education to providing support to our service members, veterans and military families, we look forward to helping the community usher in the challenges of the next 50 years.
