About Naval STEM
Deliver Naval STEM education and outreach opportunities that inspire curiosity and shape a generation of talent prepared for future global challenges.
An inclusive science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) culture that pioneers innovation and propels the Department of the Navy and Nation’s workforce forward.
The Value of STEM
The Department of the Navy (DON) has a rich history of providing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education and outreach opportunities that cultivate a diverse and well-trained pool of talent for the Navy and Marine Corps. Our warfighters’ superiority depends on scientific and technological innovations and breakthroughs of today and in the future. To promote an environment where these breakthroughs continue, the DON must foster initiatives and collaborations to promote the development of the future and current Naval STEM workforce. Deliberate investments in STEM education and outreach initiatives are a critical duty of the DON and are essential to America’s continued technological dominance. A coordinated approach within the department is imperative to optimize resources and achieve greater impact.
The Department of the Navy (DON) comprises two uniformed services: the United States Navy and the United States Marine Corps. The Navy and Marine Corps science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) initiatives are collectively referred to as Naval STEM. Naval STEM executes and supports strategic opportunities that inspire, engage, educate, employ, develop, and retain the current and future workforce through a diverse portfolio of initiatives and investments. The DON workforce includes civilians, active duty Sailors and Marines, and Navy and Marine Corps Reserve components.
Let us state it up front and in unmistakable words: Strong Naval STEM efforts are critical to America’s future, and are a matter of national security.”
– Chief of Naval Research Rear Adm. Lorin Selby, Naval STEM Executive
