Santa Catalina Middle School students experienced a whirlwind day of STEM demos and activities at Discover NPS Day on October 25.
The Naval Postgraduate School holds the day every year to invite students, teachers, and other members of the public onto campus to get a glimpse of what goes on behind the gates.
Students visited a variety of stations to learn about science concepts from NPS researchers. Among the topics they learned about were force and frequency, how satellites stay in space, and even how astronauts take showers in space. Some of their favorite stops were a virtual reality/augmented reality station and a battle bots competition.
