The U.S. Navy Seabee Museum recently held a ribbon cutting ceremony, launching its newest youth-oriented Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Center. Science, Technology, Engineering and Math are the four educational tenets that stimulate innovation in today's youth. The focus of the STEM center will be to tie these tenets to the historical resourcefulness and ingenuity of the Navy's construction force, better known as the Seabees, as well as the Civil Engineer Corps (CEC), and Underwater Construction Teams. To simulate that thinking, visitors in the exhibit are presented with interactive presentations on each of the seven Seabee job ratings and the Underwater Construction Team. High-resolution images of the launch event can be viewed and downloaded at the Seabee Museum's Flickr page.
