Introduction 

No one speaks with more authority on the topic of STEM education in America and U.S. economic competiveness than Mr. Norman Augustine. His insights as a former CEO of Lockheed Martin Corporation, coupled with his leadership of the seminal National Academies report, “Rising Above the Gathering Storm – Energizing and Employing America for a Brighter Economic Future” have contributed to his becoming a widely-hailed and heeded authority on American economic competiveness challenges.

Referring to a recent update, “The Gathering Storm – Revisited,” Mr. Augustine remarked, “Addressing American competitiveness challenges is an undertaking that will require many years, if not decades.”

This lunch will provide an opportunity for Mr. Augustine to specifically share his thoughts on the significance of education in the sciences to a strong national defense, and his views on steps we must take as a nation to secure our future as a world leading innovation powerhouse.
