About the Navy STEM Program

In 2017, the University of Connecticut (UConn) and the University of Rhode Island (URI) received a grant from the Office of Naval Research to create a community of students, faculty, and government and industry leaders who  will strive to expand the Navy science and technology workforce in the region. Rhode Island and Connecticut represent a critical region for the U.S. Navy.

Previously, the Navy STEM students toured the USS Montpelier at the Naval Submarine Base New London. We would like to thank Commander Aluin Morales, Chief Brian Biddle and Dr. Robert Lafreniere for arranging this exciting and educational experience!
