On June 3rd, 2017 Next Century Corporation hosted a free event for 60 girls aged 8-14 to learn about technology and computers.
This event was initially created by Next Century in 2010 in an effort to educate young women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines. A valuable goal was to expose STEM at an early age to provide first-hand knowledge that can be applied to future career possibilities.

Global security means local problems
Security, Intelligence, Space, Cyber, & Politics
”Think global, act local” is a common mantra that is equally applicable to national security. How so? Mike Rogers discussed the rapid changes of technology, the emergence of new (and old) national security problems, and how the nexus of technology and security will change the way we look at and interact with the world. From Russian information operations in Europe and abroad to China’s expansionist foreign policy, from conflict in cyber and outer space to economic development and innovation, challenges that seem far away have an impact here at home. He covered the issues from the lighter side to the sobering reality we now face, and chart a way forward.
