Incubator company to announce Department of Defense contract

Applied Systems & Technology Transfer, a technology company housed in the Youngstown Business Incubator, will announce its contract with the U.S. Department of Defense to implement a STEM education initiative for high schools.

The educational initiative (Manufacturing, Experimentation & Outreach) is commonly known as Mentor. It is set to be announced at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, March 13  at the Youngstown Business Incubator, 241 W. Federal St. Scheduled speakers include Applied Systems & Technology Transfer President Jack (John) A. Scott and U.S. Rep. Tim Ryan (D-17).

Mentor’s goal is to foster an interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematic disciplines and careers in high school students.
