USS Hornet’s STEM Program
The Hornet’s Stem to Stern program is an example of one of the many missed opportunities for students. This program focuses on science, technology, engineering, and math once again using the ship as a learning resource. By learning about and understanding some of the operational systems of our aircraft carrier, students can easily connect math and physics that they are learning in the classrooms with real world applications.
