The Geospatial Leaders Summer Program will run from June 22 through July 20 and focus on promoting science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines.
Northern Virginia high school students who participate in the program will study geospatial intelligence.
Programs that promote careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics may open students’ minds working in the information technology field, said Jordan Becker, a vice president and general manager at BAE.
Becker leads the company’s business in geospatial intelligence and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.
Company volunteers will act as mentors through teaching skills such as resume building, networking and job interviewing techniques.
