STEM Center for Education & Outreach

The USNA STEM Center is focused on addressing an urgent national need for more young people to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. USNA faculty and midshipmen provide STEM outreach to local and national communities to engage and influence students and teachers. Some statistics from the most recent academic year include:

•  The Midshipmen STEM Outreach Cadre of 65 midshipmen were recognized by the Under Secretary of Defense as the DoD STEM Advocate of the FY2019 Second Quarter for exemplary support of the DoD mission for inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers through their local and national outreach.
