Student Classes & Navy Career Days
Click the center video to see PORPOISE students engage engineering principals to design nautical robots and utilize C++ code to create autonomous vehicles. NAVY CAREER DAYS: (Link further down the page.) 35 students, teachers & parents participated in a four-day U.S. Navy engineering immersion program.
NAVY CAREER DAYS: PORPOISE Robotics believes students should be exposed to real world engineering. PORPOISE sponsored a four day Naval Careers program. 35 students, teachers and parents toured an active aircraft carrier, a nuclear submarine, and received lectures from Navy engineers. PORPOISE students met with trainers from the Navy’s Marine Mammal Center, Navy Divers involved in ship engineering and salvage, learned about fascinating careers from the Science Advisor to 3rd fleet, as well as the SEALs, and heard from the program manager of the Pentagon’s Joint Robotics Program.
For Marine Science, students explored the tidal and salt marsh areas at San Dieguito Sanctuary lead by Scripps’ students, and visited Scripps Institute of Oceanography, touring research vessels including the famous “FLIP” which goes vertical and has an interior resembling an Escher painting. When it comes to naval engineering, PORPOISE students experience it first hand.
PORPOISE Robotics sets up engineering tours with the Navy, commercial, or private engineering facilities. Contact us.
