Thank you for your interest in the Tweetup. Registration is now closed.

Raytheon will invite 50 of its Twitter followers to participate in a day of activities at the Farnborough International Airshow on Friday, July 13. The Tweetup will provide Raytheon’s social media followers with exclusive access to the Airshow via Raytheon’s hub at Farnborough. The Farnborough International Airshow is a global event that brings together companies from the aerospace, defense, space and security sectors to showcase and demonstrate aircraft, equipment and technologies. It is one of the largest, most diverse gatherings of the international aviation community in the world.

Participants in the Raytheon Tweetup at Farnborough will have the opportunity to watch the flying displays from a private balcony with unobstructed views at the Raytheon chalet. Participants also will watch student rocketeers from France, the United Kingdom and the United States participate in the fifth annual International Rocketry Challenge.

The Raytheon Tweetup at Farnborough will take place on “Futures Day,” designed to demonstrate how science, technology, engineering and mathematics subjects have a direct impact on the real world now and in the future, through the exciting – and often loud! – atmosphere of the number one global aerospace event.

Raytheon continues its commitment to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers by allowing registrants to sign up with a young person ages 11-21 whom they would bring with them if selected.

Anyone can follow along with all the activities using the hashtag #meetRay and following @Raytheon and @MathMovesU.
