Lockheed Martin Australia has been supporting this event for more than four years, and this will be the second year the defence and innovation company has partnered as the platinum sponsor.

"We are delighted to be supporting Science Alive! for the fourth year running," said Lockheed Martin Australia chief executive Vince Di Pietro.

"We’re proud to roll up our sleeves and contribute in such an active way to our nation’s goal to develop an enduring, highly skilled workforce, and this is just one of the STEM [science, technology engineering and mathematics] initiatives we are investing in to help generate enthusiasm and create opportunities for thousands of young Australians to engineer and enjoy the future.

"Our Lockheed Martin Australia employees have been volunteering their support for this event over many years as volunteers, and we are proud to see it spread in rural and regional communities in South Australia."

Lockheed Martin Australia will be front and centre at the exhibition with a strong focus on defence and space activities. Visitors to the Lockheed Martin Australia stand will be able to fly an F-35 jet, learn about how submarines work, walk on Mars and speak to engineers about what a STEM-related career at Lockheed Martin can offer in the future.
