The USNA STEM Center participated in the San Diego Festival of Science and Engineering Expo held in Petco Park on Saturday March 4, 2017. Prof Mark Murray along with six midshipmen, MIDN 1/C Erik Sutton, MIDN 2/C Joshua Shamrakov, MIDN 3/C Dominique Adams, Harold Mantilla, Jocelyn Rodriguez, and Jacob Santiago, manned the USNA STEM Booth, one of over 100 participant booths, to support the family friendly festival that was attended by an estimated 25,000 members of the community. The interactive science and engineering modules presented by the USNA booth included construction of straw rockets and hoop gliders, programmable line-following robots, lather prints, logic puzzles, and boat design.
"Our participation at the San Diego Science Festival was a rewarding endeavor and showed the tremendous potential we can have far from the Academy," shared MIDN 1/C Erik Sutton.
