Services and Agencies

The Department of Defense has long supported STEM education and outreach activities throughout the nation. The Army, Navy, Air Force and other DoD agencies (i.e. - Missile Defense Agency, Defense Threat Reduction Agency, etc.) each bring unique skills and activities to the DoD STEM enterprise.  Whether it's through an immersive STEM educator program at the United States Naval Academy or a hands-on STEM summer camp at an Army laboratory, DoD services and agencies share a common goal: build a STEM-literate culture, inspire the next generation to the wonders of STEM, and attract the best and brightest to our elite workforce.
