DENVER, CO (PRWEB) February 03, 2015
Innovation & Tech Today magazine, one of the most dynamic and forward-thinking technology publications in North America, is deepening its commitment to STEM education initiatives by announcing media partnership with the USA Science and Engineering Festival presented by Lockheed Martin. The biennial U.S. Science and Engineering Festival is the world’s largest student-centered technology event, with more than 350,000 attendees coming to Washington D.C. in 2014.
“The USA Science & Engineering Festival has a main mission to inspire our youth to pursue STEM in education. A publication like Innovation & Tech Today proves to be an important channel for that message to reach a larger audience. This partnership will advance our ability to provide worthwhile content delivered through a professionally respected publication. We truly look forward to our future projects together." Said Marc Schulman, Executive Director-USA Science & Engineering Festival
“We couldn’t be happier partnering with such a worthy and important event like the USA Science and Engineering Festival,” Innovation & Tech Today publisher Charles Warner said. “This could very well be the most important cause for our nation’s future.”
Under the arrangement, Innovation & Tech Today will cover activities connected with the USA Science and Engineering Festival, including the Extreme STEM Symposium (X-STEM) on April 28 in Washington, D.C. Top scientists and engineering professionals will speak to students at the event. Innovation & Tech Today will have a central booth presence, provide print and digital subscriptions, and run sweepstakes and giveaways at the 4th USA Science and Engineering Festival, which will take place April 16-17, 2016.
Innovation & Tech Today will feature interviews with many of the world’s top educators, scientists, technology experts, bestselling authors and futurists, all of whom advise or serve on the event board. Furthermore, the magazine will greatly expand its STEM-related education coverage under the direction of Associate Editor Melissa Hirsch.
“Perhaps the biggest obstacle to increasing the number of kids in STEM track fields is a lack of excitement and accessible role models,” said Hirsch. “By interviewing people like Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides, inventor-technology advocate Dean Kaman, Hugo Award-winning science fiction author David Brin, and Alyssa Carson, a 13-year-old girl who aspires to be the first human being on Mars, we hope to contribute to a culture celebrating and further promoting STEM.”
Innovation & Tech Today has concerned itself with education since its founding in 2012. The Winter 2015 issue, now on newsstands, features a conversation with Sal Khan, owner-founder of The Khan Academy. Two former college teachers, Editor Robert Yehling and Melissa Hirsch, head the magazine’s editorial team.
Innovation & Tech Today is distributed on newsstands throughout the United States and Canada, as well as digitally through iTunes, Zinio and Google. The magazine partners with the USA Science & Engineering Festival, International CES, CEDIA home automation show, Digital Book World, Sustainable Brands, and the L.A. Auto Show.
