STEM Initiatives

NTSA is focused on filling our workforce pipeline with prospects who are better prepared, more confident and highly engaged to take on careers in the Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) fields, particularly those in our industry. As such, NTSA recognizes the critical importance of engaging students early in hands-on STEM activities while supporting educators who are our front line in shaping and building our future workforce.


Using I/ITSEC as a platform, NTSA's goal is to leverage industry professionals in inspiring students and preparing teachers to help secure the future of both our industry and our nation.

STEM @ I/ITSEC activities include:

  • Future Leaders Pavilion
  • STEM Pavilion Exhibits
  • Student Tours
  • America’s Teachers at I/ITSEC program
  • Serious Games Showcase & Challenge
  • RADM Fred Lewis I/ITSEC Postgraduate Scholarship, Leonard P. Gollobin Postgraduate Scholarship, and Barbara McDaniel Undergraduate Scholarship
