USA Science & Engineering Festival
Free Expo: April 7-8, 2018
Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Lockheed Martin is proud to be the founding and presenting host of the USA Science & Engineering Festival, the largest—and only—national STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) event, created to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers.
This free event features more than 1,000 STEM organizations presenting hands-on,
fun science activities for people of all ages.
Discover Where STEM Can Take You
The demonstrations presented at the USA Science & Engineering Festival represent a small portion of the programs at Lockheed Martin but they showcase the depth and breadth of the talent and ingenuity that we bring to our customers.
While it looks like it could be ripped from the scenes of a movie or TV show, this science isn’t fiction.
The centerpiece of our exhibit is the Future Career Predictor – located at the base of our video tower, it just might help you find what STEM career suits you best.
Our exhibit is based on the idea that if we can’t take you to our labs then we will create them for you! Within our RadLabs exhibit, you can visit three areas:
- Fly a full-scale RAIDER helicopter simulator.
- Climb on board our famous F-35 fighter jet and learn how to build a plan in our virtual reality hangar.
- Marvel at a scale model of our unequaled Hybrid Airship and learn about buoyancy, lift and force.
- Go to Mars on our world-renowned group VR Mars Bus and check out the Mars Base Camp VR experience where you will learn how to live in space.
- Learn about the Orion capsule and how it will enable extended space travel for you and me.
- Explore the connection between weather prediction and our GOES-R satellite.
- Control a robot rover and help save the day in a simulated disaster zone.
- Wonder at the feats of wearable robots! See how we are pioneering the future of exoskeleton technology.
- Discover the world of unmanned vehicles at our interactive display and demo.
