Chantilly students are invited to attend a Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Career Fair in Loudoun County this month. 

The career fair, scheduled for Sept. 27 and 28 at Dulles Town Center is open to middle and high school students in the area. 

U.S. Rep. Frank Wolf, who represents much of the Chantilly area, said he is a longtime supporter of STEM education and is encouraging students to attend the fair and learn more. The congressman is sponsoring the fair along with the National Science Foundation (NSF.) 

“The fair is aimed at encouraging young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math, which are the surest career paths to an exciting, successful career and a strong, competitive economy,”  said Wolf, who is the chairman of the House Appropriations Committee which distributes funds to national science programs. 

The fair will be attended by representatives from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), NASA, the Friends of the National Zoo and National Institute of Health, (NIH)  the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) and others. 

The fair is Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Dulles Town Center at 21100 Dulles Town Circle in Dulles. 

For more information about the fair, call Susan Mason in the NSF office at 703-292-8070, or emailSTEMFair@nsf.gov.
