Message from Dr. Ray Johnson, Chief Technology Officer,
is a great pleasure to sponsor "The Technology and The
Environment Competition" for The New York City Schools.
a global security company, Lockheed Martin recognizes the economic
and strategic challenges posed by a dependence on foreign oil
and the potentially destabilizing effect of climate change.
That is why we are leveraging our more than 140,000 innovative
minds in the Corporation to help address the world’s energy
and climate challenges. Lockheed Martin is innovating solutions
in all aspects of the energy cycle – energy generation,
storage, transmission, and efficiency and management. We are
supporting alternative energy generation and climate monitoring
research and development, and increasing our energy efficiency
through a Go Green Initiative to reduce our own environmental
competition gives the participants a chance to share their ideas,
innovations, and novel approaches to solving these grand environmental
challenges. We at Lockheed Martin look forward to watching each
one of the Technology Videos that you submit, and we wish you
the best of luck in the competition.
and innovative people are vital to the future of Lockheed Martin.
It is exciting to have the opportunity to interact with young
people on their way to becoming future engineers and scientists.
I encourage all students to continue their individual studies
and choose an education filled with STEM (Science, Technology,
Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects. Lockheed Martin’s
future and the future of the Nation depend on a motivated and
well-educated workforce having these STEM skills.
look forward to meeting the Finalists in New York City during
the awards ceremony in early 2010.
