    As a father of one of the Students who were able to attend the STEM Expo, I am extremely proud as a member of the local Williamtown team at Lockheed Martin.
    It was gratifying to be able to explain to the students their future’s possibilities, and as members of the greater Defence Community share our experiences and expertise and perhaps give a little advice and guidance.
    All of our local team and our extended LMA team from Melbourne, Canberra and Adelaide as well as members of our US LM team helped to make this expo a reality. Industry partners such as Boeing, BAE Systems and MilSkill as well as the training providers, TAFE NSW, Newcastle Uni, Pennant and of course the reason we have a job here, the RAAF and Department of Defence were all there for one purpose, to help shape our children’s future.
    With the guidance of RDA Hunter in league with all of our industry partners, the future is bright for our students.
    I look forward to the next STEM expo.
