Join us for a discussion with a Lockheed Martin Engineer!

Next week (sorry for the short notice), we are starting a series of meeting with Lockheed Martin employees.  I was lucky enough to visit Lockheed Martin a couple of months ago - it was amazing, we got to go in the clean room - we saw three spaceships/satellites that they currently working on and had a great tour with one of the engineers.

The idea of this series is to start connecting you with industry partners who are willing to embark on projects with your students.  These discussions are to introduce you with people at Lockheed who are wanting to work with educators and introduce your students to the world of aerospace and engineering.  

To get the most out of this, I would ask that you come prepared.  Take a look at the job description below for the first presenter and have your students do a little research and come up with a few questions for you to ask during the session.  If you then want to try and get together with one or more of the people that we introduce you too and connect them with your class for a session or two, we will work with you to get that organized.
