As part of X-STEM 2017 on April 28th, we have collaborated with Festival Sponsor and local technology consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton, to create a special STEM Career Luncheon for a select number of students attending X-STEM. The goal of this luncheon program is to give students a real-life look at the day-to-day lives of STEM Experts at Booz Allen Hamilton and learn about the rewards (and challenges) of going into a career in this field. Thank you, Booz Allen Hamilton, for providing students with this opportunity! Learn more about how to register for X-STEM in this newsletter.
