Lockheed Martin (LMT) has partnered with the new LifeJourney mentoring program in an effort to inspire the nation’s youth to consider careers in cyber security and other Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) fields.
The company’s experts in data scientology and cyber architecture are acting as LifeJourney mentors to help students acquire necessary skills and opportunities to get internships and future jobs in related professions.
“The LifeJourney program allows Lockheed Martin to combine our technology expertise with our corporate commitment to STEM education and connect with thousands of students,” said Stephanie C. Hill, president of Lockheed Martin’s Information System and Global Solutions-Civil business. “It’s powerful when our experts in cyber security and other STEM fields can share their experiences and inspire students to seek such exciting and rewarding careers.”
Lifejourney is a web-based, interactive classroom experience that schools can use to introduce students to careers in cyber security and STEM careers. Lifejourney recently made its debut at the 2013 Cyber Maryland Conference in Baltimore, Md on Oct. 8.
