VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (NNS) -- Military personnel from Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Mid-Atlantic visited Corporate Landing Middle School in Virginia Beach Sept. 27 to give presentations as part of a Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Career Conference for children at the school.

Lt. Jessie Wright, Lt. Ross McCaskill, Lt. j.g. Nick Hanford, Ens. Amanda Caffee and Engineering Aide Second Class William Anderson visited the school, teaching students how surveying equipment, such as a transit, measuring tape, a surveying rod and levels, are used for construction projects, and discussed science and technology in golf.

"I really enjoyed being able to reach out to the local community and pass along some of the knowledge I gained from my undergraduate surveying class and what I learned in Civil Engineering Corps Officer School," said Hanford.

Wright said the NAVFAC Mid-Atlantic group did presentations throughout the day for four different classes. The training was hands on, with students having the opportunity to use the equipment in a series of exercises.

"It was great, the kids were really engaged and asked many interesting questions," he added.
