*** The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is gathering leaders from the Department of the Navy (DoN), industry, academia and nonprofits to partner on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) initiatives at a conference scheduled June 15-16.

Over the course of the two-day event, to be held at the Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, Va., senior Navy leaders will outline their vision for the service's STEM program; explore partnership opportunities with participants; and discuss education outreach and research.

The forum's featured Navy speakers include Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus, Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Gary Roughead and Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Nevin Carr.

Aimed at increasing the pool of future naval scientists and engineers, the DoN has a long history of supporting STEM education and outreach. In fiscal 2010, the DoN invested $58 million in 170 STEM-related educational programs. That same year, the Secretary of the Navy made an aggressive pledge to double naval STEM investment over the next five years.
