MOUNT VERNON, VA – On May 17, 2014 the Northern Virginia Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Alliance (NOVA STEM Alliance) held its third annual STEM Career Festival at Mount Vernon High School. NES Associates (www.nesassociates.com) served as the principal corporate sponsor for this year’s event.

The NOVA STEM Alliance created the STEM Career Festival to expose students and parents to opportunities in STEM career fields as research studies from the Department of Commerce have determined STEM job creation will outpace non-STEM jobs significantly over the next 10 years. The Festival provides students with an enriching platform and opportunity to engage in fun and interactive, hands-on presentations.

NES Associates was very excited to sponsor and partner with the NOVA STEM Alliance for this year’s career festival. “NES is pleased to have been able to contribute to a successful STEM Career Festival,” says Tim Murray, NES Chief Operating Officer. “The NOVA STEM Alliance provides great motivation for students to stay focused on science, technology, engineering and math as they see the vast and interesting career possibilities these fields offer.”

The STEM Career Festival is the premiere event for the NOVA STEM Alliance, a nonprofit organization that focuses on increasing awareness to career opportunities in STEM by exposing students to practitioners within these career fields. This year’s festival had 500 registrants and over 150 people in attendance.
