Mission of the STEM Center

The USNA STEM Center addresses an urgent Navy and national need for more young people to pursue careers in science and engineering, particularly in technical areas of interest to the military. The Center faculty and midshipmen, using Defense related activities, provide outreach to local and national communities, including those that are currently underserved, to influence students and teachers in engineering and science studies, and to facilitate the recruitment of USNA candidates with an interest in STEM careers.

The Center supports recruitment and retention of USNA candidates with an affinity towards STEM majors as well as the development of the midshipmen attributes such as leadership in the classroom, creative problem-solving skills, innovative thinking, and the ability to adapt to unanticipated situations. Participation in STEM events prepares midshipmen to interface with multiple technologies, exposes them to the interdependence of different disciplines in STEM military technologies, and enhances the technical proficiency and communication skills of our graduates.
