STEM Education for National Security
Expanding the STEM talent pipeline for national security
The U.S. Department of Defense is one of the nation’s largest employer of scientists and engineers, but routinely has trouble filling these important national security positions due to lack of qualified applicants. GSI seeks to expand the pipeline of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) talent interested in defense and security careers by providing novel educational experiences to learners — from primary school students to professionals seeking to develop new skill sets.
- Hands-on educational experiences like hackathons.
- High school internships in a university research lab.
- Workforce development programs for defense and national security employers.
- Unique educational experiences for middle and high school students, on topics such as cybersecurity and biotechnology.
