This past Friday in Washington, D.C. over 3,000 students attended the 2017 X-STEM Symposium! Sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense, students from all over the country gathered at the Convention Center and heard stories of inspiration from speakers with prosperous careers in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
“The wonderful success of this year’s X-STEM continues our mission to inspire our nation’s youth to join the STEM community. I give a heartfelt thank you to our partner at the United States Department of Defense for their acknowledgment and support of our efforts. I wish to convey my appreciation and respect for our 21 amazing speakers who donated their time and energy to pass on their passion for their STEM fields. Lastly, I want to thank the educators and students who recognize the importance of efforts like this to further enforce their desire to enrich our lives in the future.” – USA Science & Engineering Festival Executive Director Marc Schulman
