While we know that everything is kind of crazy right now, you are all getting very used to being on Zoom(!), so please join us for this exciting opportunity.

On  April 8th, we have the third in a series of meetings with engineers from Lockheed Martin.  See below for details.

The idea of this series is to start connecting teachers with industry partners who are willing to embark on projects with your students.  These discussions are to introduce you with people at Lockheed Martin 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.
