NSWC Crane – Crane Report – 02/21/2019


WELCOME TO THE CRANE REPORT. I’M BRETT DAY, THANKS FOR JOINING US. LET’S BEGIN WITH OUR LEAD STORY.
ON THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 21ST CRANE HOSTED THE FIRST-EVER STEM DAY AT WESTGATE ACADEMY. WE WERE ABLE TO TALK WITH SOME VOLUNTEERS AND PARTICIPANTS FROM THE EVENT. IT’S AMAZING TO HAVE THIS MANY STUDENTS HERE SO MANY YOUNG PEOPLE HERE FROM ALL AROUND THE AREA. NUMBER ONE, TO TO SHOW THEM THE IMPORTANCE OF THE IMPACT THAT THEY CAN MAKE. WE NEED SMART, YOUNG, ENERGETIC FOLKS HELP US BECOME BETTER AND SEE MORE INTO THE FUTURE. I’M SO EXCITED THAT THEY’RE HERE. I’M SO PROUD THAT THEY’RE HERE, AND THEY’RE WILLING TO TAKE THE TIME OUT OF THEIR DAY TO COME LEARN ABOUT CRANE AND SEE THE OPPORTUNITIES THAT WE HAVE HERE FOR THEM. THE EVENT BROUGHT TOGETHER EIGHT HUNDRED STUDENTS FROM 20 DIFFERENT SCHOOLS TO LEARN ABOUT HOW CRANE’S TECHNICAL WORK RELATES TO THEIR SCHOOLWORK, AND ALSO HOW IT CAN LEAD TO A FULFILLING CAREER IN A STEM-RELATED FIELD. AS SOON AS WE GOT IN HERE WE STARTED WATCHING THIS VIDEO ABOUT HOW SUBMA RINES HAVE TO TARGET THEIR TARGETS FROM REALLY FAR AWAY, AND THEIR TARGETS CAN BE MOVING SOMETIMES SO THEY GAVE US A PROJECT THAT WAS KIND OF ANALOGOUS TO THAT. WE HAD TO SHOOT PING PONG BALLS OUT OF THESE SPOONS I HAD RUBBER BANDS ON THEM AND HAD A TARGET, WHICH KIND OF SEEMED SIMPLE AT FIRST BUT IT’S ACTUALLY REALLY A SMART COMPARISON. IT WAS A COOL LEARNING EXPERIENCE JUST TO SEE HOW HOW FINE-TUNED ACCURACY AND PRECISION ACTUALLY NEEDS TO BE TO HIT SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IN THE FUTURE I’D LOVE TO DO SOMETHING LIKE ENGINEERING JUST BECAUSE IT’S ALL KIND OF COMING EASY TO ME NOW THAT I HAVE DONE ALL THESE
PROGRAMS. OUR EMPLOYEE SPOTLIGHT THIS WEEK IS ON JAMES GARRETT. AT 17, HE JOINED THE NAVY AND TRAVELED THE WORLD AS AN AIRCRAFT MECHANIC AND HIS MILITARY LAW ENFORCEMENT.

ON BEHALF OF NSWC CRANE CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, I’M BRETT DAY. THANKS FOR WATCHING!
