Northrop Grumman inspired a new generation to consider STEM careers by attending the Cheltenham Science Festival. The event brought together some of the best scientists, writers and thinkers to explore big ideas and answer big questions over six days.

Festival highlights included Rick Armstrong remembering his father Neil Armstrong’s 1969 mission to the moon, bestselling author Matt Haig and CBBC’s Operation Ouch presenter Dr Ronxare acting as Guest Curators for the theme of Wellness, a visit from Nobel prize-winning biologist Venki Ramakrishnan, and hundreds of free activities for all ages.

Members of the enthusiastic Northrop Grumman team were at the Festival for the full week and caught up with young talent about cyber career opportunities.
