McLean, VA — April 16 2018 – Trowbridge & Trowbridge, LLC (T&T), a Federal systems integrator delivering transformational technology solutions, supported the WashingtonExec K-12STEM Symposium as an Award Sponsor on April 14th. T&T President & CEO, Karen Trowbridge, was on hand at the event to present several inaugural awards.
The free symposium was held at the Nysmith School in Herndon, VA, and drew almost 3,000 children, parents, teachers, civic officials, and business leaders to attend. Trowbridge said, “WashingtonExec does an outstanding job organizing this event and inspiring young women and men to continue studying STEM disciplines, to dream big, and live up to this year’s symposium theme.”
The 2018 symposium theme of “Building Tomorrow’s Superheroes, Today” was conveyed through more than 50 interactive exhibits and the top science fair projects from 20 local students, who will then participate in regional competition. Attendees enjoyed collaborating with one another and sharing innovative ideas whether discussing 3D printers, flight simulators, or the egg drop contest.
This was the fifth year of Northern Virginia’s largest K-12 STEM event. Trowbridge added, “This year’s theme resonates strongly with us at T&T. As a federal contractor we know the heroic value of science and technology in supporting federal agency missions. It was a distinct honor to present these inaugural winners with their well-deserved awards.”
Trowbridge presented two different awards to three separate winners. Best STEM Non-Profit was presented to the Boolean Girls for their efforts to narrow the gender gap in STEM inspiring girls to build, code, invent, and animate with their friends. Most Inspiring STEM Executive of 2018 was awarded to Anne Swanson of CGI Federal for her civic work in STEM pursuits. This year’s STEM Rising Star was presented to Kavya Kopparapu for her impressive STEM accomplishments in 2017.
