The Navy, STEM to stern

By Flora Richards Gustafson
Like all branches of the military, the Navy is actively pursuing recruits with STEM training and interest, offering a STEM career tool online at http://www.navy.com/stem/career-tool.html, and a Facebook page dedicated to STEM as well, www.facebook.com/UsNavyStem.

A recent crowning achievement for the integration of STEM fields in a single example is the commissioning in September of the $2 billion U.S.S. Minnesota, complete with touch screens in its control suite. 

“Designed as an advanced stealth multi-mission nuclear-powered boat,” the Minnesota can “conduct missions including anti-submarine, anti-surface ship, strike, special operation forces, irregular and mine warfare, as well as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance missions,” according to Naval-Technology.com.
