SUNNYVALE, Calif., June 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT)
announced today that it is hosting 20 middle and high school teachers over the
summer as part of the company's long-standing support of the Bay Area-based
Industry Initiatives for Science and Math Education (IISME) and its Summer
Fellowship Program. IISME works to cultivate a strong, highly skilled
workforce in mathematics, science and technology. 

IISME's Summer Fellowship Program places qualified teachers into local
companies and research labs for an eight-week learning experience. During this
period, each teacher is paired with industry mentors to augment their science
and math skills by solving real-world problems. Upon returning to the
classroom, application of the industry experience helps teachers stimulate
student interest in math and science and, in turn, helps students to become
lifelong learners.

"For nearly three decades, Lockheed Martin has partnered with IISME to provide
Bay Area teachers with a memorable hands-on experience," said Kevin Bilger,
Lockheed Martin vice president, and member of the IISME Strategic Leadership
Council."We're excited to collaborate on the technical challenges faced in
developing our innovative space systems and to help them apply the lessons
learned back in the classroom to better prepare their students to become our
next-generation of scientists and engineers."

This summer, Lockheed Martin IISME Teacher-Fellows will work on a broad range
of technical challenges associated with space-based systems under development
at the company's Bay Area facilities including satellite telecommunications
and other advanced technologies.

IISME was founded in 1985 by a consortium of San Francisco Bay Area companies
including Lockheed Martin, in partnership with the Lawrence Hall of Science at
the University of California, Berkeley and seeks to transform teaching and
learning through industry-education partnerships. Since IISME's inception,
Lockheed Martin has led Bay Area companies by sponsoring nearly 400 Teacher
Fellowships.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and
aerospace company that employs about 118,000 people worldwide and is
principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture,
integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and
services.The Corporation's net sales for 2012 were $47.2 billion. For
