The Office of Personnel Management is encouraging federal employees to support a Defense Department program for encouraging students to pursue federal technical careers.

OPM Director John Berry wrote in a memo that the Pentagon’s education activity works to generate primary education students’ interest in science, technology, engineering, and math.

The initiative has federal STEM professionals and Pentagon educators provide lessons and activities for participating students.

The program also exposes students to potential federal careers and internships in STEM fields.

Berry wrote the program is intended to combat the federal government’s shortage of STEM professionals.

The Pentagon is planning a series of global STEM events for the spring.
