This year, the event theme is Growing a STEM for a Stronger Tomorrow, a topic that couples the Air Force Association's and George Mason University Virginia Serious Game Institute's collective ingenuity and legacy of supporting opportunities to shape America's post-Millennial generation in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). During this day-long summit we will present national security challenges faced by America's defense organizations from today's tech advancements and how they will affect our future.
We will discuss and identify best practices of bridging critical STEM gaps in gender, race and socioeconomic arenas that affect America's future workforce. The conference will foster an environment to develop training ideas to advance opportunities for a stronger workforce in America's STEM career fields.
This conference is open to government, industry, academia and students who want to learn more about the challenges of today’s tech on America's national security and what is being done to shape America's future opportunities to bridge critical gaps in STEM to be able to deal with it.
