U.S. ARMY STEM EXPERIENCE
FACE TOMORROW AS A SOLDIER IN THE U.S. ARMY
The year is 2032. The world faces unique challenges tied to environmental disaster and continued political strife. A fresh, new perspective is needed to solve the latest challenge: a terrorist attack on a chemical plant in Europe.
The mission is yours.
The U.S. Army STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Experience includes a fast-moving scenario where your knowledge and problem solving abilities are put to the test. The mission is humanitarian focused and requires the use of Army technology and teamwork to save thousands of lives.
Enter the future, a briefing area surrounding by video screens showing fictional news clips from around the world in 2032.
Enter room two where you will join a team of Soldiers and scientist to analyze the factors you face in the scenario. Your skills Science, technology, math and engineering provide you with the knowledge to succeed as you consider a way to overcome the hazards involved and help the people facing the disaster scenario.
Enter room three where you use an interactive screen to build a solution. There’s no wrong answer as you learn to execute a game plan that’s uniquely your own.
SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND THE U.S. ARMY
The Army is a leader in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Roughly 56 percent of all scientists and engineers in the U.S. Army are employed by the Army Research and Development Command.
RDECOM is a world-wide organization. With its headquarters at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., RDECOM has laboratories and Research, Development & Engineering Centers (RDECs) throughout the country and representatives throughout the world. RDECOM is home to more than 16,000 military and civilians. About 70 percent of that number includes scientists and engineers, harnessing the potential of research, development and engineering for U.S. armed forces on a daily basis.
Developing and attracting the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians is vital to the organization’s mission in ensuring that the Army and the nation maintains its global competitiveness in innovation. RDECOM is the Army’s focal point for developing, integrating and accelerating innovative technology and sound engineering solutions that provide our U.S. forces with decisive and dominant capability.
