(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”.
