STEM Educators Engage with Navy Scientists at ‘STEM Workshop for Educators’
August 9, 2019
IMAGE: KING GEORGE, Va. (July 30, 2019) – Navy engineer Page Wessel, left, briefs a local school teacher on the use of coding blocks to write a program for the Mindstorm EV3 robot at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division (NSWCDD) STEM Workshop for Educators at the University of Mary Washington Dahlgren campus. Wessel was among the NSWCDD scientists and engineers who joined university professors at the workshop to share best practices and ideas for project based learning in STEM with elementary, middle, and high school educators. The forum featured briefings and demonstrations while the educators participated in hands-on activities that they could pass on to other teachers and students at their respective schools. The activities included, “Straw Rockets and Mini-Railgun”, “Ozobots and Littlebits Engineering”, and “EV3 LEGO Robotics”.

Navy Warfare Center Engineers Revolutionize AEGIS Combat System Training with CIAT
August 8, 2019
IMAGE: DAHLGREN, Va. (Aug. 8, 2019) - The CIAT – Combined Integrated Air and Missile Defense (IAMD) and Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Trainer – team is pictured at Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) Dahlgren Division headquarters. The team worked with NSWC Carderock Division to develop a technical approach that originated during the early stages of CIAT’s combat system virtualization and technology exploration. NSWC Dahlgren Division is the lead integrator and the IAMD developer for CIAT. NSWC Carderock Division is the ASW developer and Naval Undersea Warfare Center Newport Division is the ASW components developer. The three divisions delivered CIAT to the Fleet shore based facilities in 2018 as the most capable combat systems trainer ever developed for the Navy surface force.
