Lockheed Martin has partnered with the creators of a cyber and Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics mentoring program to help students become more interested in STEM related professions.
The LifeJourney mentoring program will allows students to “test drive” careers in cybersecurity in an online, interactive classroom setting environment, Lockheed Martin said Wednesday.
“The LifeJourney program allows Lockheed Martin to combine our technology expertise with our corporate commitment to STEM education and connect with thousands of students,” said Stephanie C. Hill, Lockheed Martin’s Information System and Global Solutions-Civil business president.
The program will give the students “a day in the life” experience of industry leaders.
“It’s powerful when our experts in cybersecurity and other STEM fields can share their experiences and inspire students to seek such exciting and rewarding careers,” Hill added.
There are 100 professionals to be featured in the program, starting Oct. 8 at the 2013 Cyber Maryland Conference in Baltimore, Md.
