National Security Agency
MEPP Speakers Bureau
As the largest employer of mathematicians in the nation, The National Security Agency (NSA) is critically dependent on the continuing development of first-class American mathematicians. NSA has initiated programs such as the MEPP Speakers Bureau to support the STEM education effort. The MEPP Speakers Bureau offers a large variety of fun and fascinating STEM-related interactive talks given by NSA employees to students to inspire them to be enthusiastic about their future encounter with STEM subject matter.
BCA’s partnership with NSA allows the school to schedule speakers at the elementary and middle school levels. Students are also encouraged to go online to www.nsa.gov/kids to create secret codes and ciphers, learn the art of Morse code, and test their skills with fun games and activities.
