BREMERTON, Wash. (NNS) — Sailors and DoD civilians from commands within Navy Region Northwest participated in a Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) showcase at Bremerton High School, May 4. Fifty organizations formed 65 booths displaying one of the elements of STEM for Kitsap County school district students from grades kindergarten through 12th grade.

“We are hosting several different booths that are hands-on activities for the kids,” said Corinne Beach, K-12 STEM coordinator, from Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS). “Some of those booths are showing how electricity works, how circuits work … we have some swimming pools that have underwater vehicles in them. It’s about providing some of our tools from our tool bag for hands on activities for the kids.”

STEM is the integration of the fields of science, technology, engineering and math into one application to help encourage problem solving across various fields, said Beach.
