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 Lewis Postgraduate I/ITSEC Scholarships

Please see the STEM @ I/ITSEC Brochure for more details on all of these programs.

STEM @ I/ITSEC activities are made possible by corporate and individual contributions of resources, principally time and money.
