Ed Swallow talks about the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in today’s fast-paced economy.
Swallow founded the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) STEM Workforce Division in 2008 as a way to build STEM learning network. He has partnered with WashingtonExec in the National Capital region to build our STEM Council and assist with our second annual STEM Symposium (scheduled for March 7, 2015).
Swallow notes the key to STEM engagement is “getting kids excited at an early age about why science and math matter.”
The 2015 STEM Symposium will be held March 7th 2015 in Chantilly, Virginia. The symposium will provide the opportunity for K-12 students in the National Capital Region (NCR) to showcase their achievements in STEM and to interact with key business, education, non-profit and government leaders through real-life applications and presentations about how science, technology, engineering and mathematics impacts our community.
