NAVSEA Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) Education and Outreach


Did you know that by the time you grow up, most jobs will involve some form of science, technology and math? It's true.

Right now math and science jobs are popping up more than other jobs, so it's important for you to keep up in your science and

math studies.


While the Navy has always been about science and engineering, we are very interested in helping students get more excited about

technology, mathematics and engineering.


Our web site is full of information including computer wallpapers, screen saver programs, coloring books, puzzles and other references

to help you enjoy learning and improving your skills.
