The U.S. Navy will be hosting a free virtual field trip geared towards middle schoolers and will be providing exclusive access to one of their premiere science labs (Space and Naval Warfare Systems Center) on Oct. 16th at 1 p.m. eastern. The Navy is encouraging classrooms interested in STEM to join them by viewing a live stream of their scientists performing 7 experiments that will inform about “Ocean Light and Communication/Invisible Light.” Scientists will explore light in the atmosphere and ocean as well as infrared light and laser systems during this time and will provide your class with a short post event worksheet/quiz.

Links and attachments that include further details about the Navy’s lab, the experiments that will be performed, and a short post event worksheet/quiz are provided in this email. If you like, you can also conduct similar experiments in your classroom (details also attached). Please let me know if you’re interested in joining this stream or have further questions.
