Science and Engineering Divisions are now actively participating in the weekend
visits to encourage more STEM majors at USNA. Midshipmen STEM Majors provide the guided
tours and stop at 10 or more lab areas to talk to midshipmen and faculty who are performing
research or working on capstone projects. Prior to the tours the visitors see a brief on Technology
in the Navy and how STEM majors are addressing the needs of the fleet. Tours are conducted during
5th periods and panel discussions on life as a STEM major occur during 6th period on Fridays.
Midshipmen are needed for tour guides and panel members. Tour
training is provided.

Seaperch is a national remotely operated vehicle (ROV) program sponsored by the Office of Naval Research
(ONR) and Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME). This activity involves helping
with training workshops for teachers, as well as build sessions with students. Showcases are held in December
and May in collaboration with school STEM programs. This year's showcases will involve 25 Anne Arundel County schools,
