Naval Medical Center Camp Lejeune’s STEM program has invited students to participate in their outreach programs since 2016.
About 150 students from the Department of Defense Education Activities rotated through a series of stations. Each station focused on a different skill.
Mentors in surgery, laboratory, pharmacy, orthopedics, physical therapy, radiology, labor and delivery, anesthesiology and podiatry were present demonstrating skills in real-time.
Another STEM fair will take place in the spring for Onslow County Schools.
