U.S. ARMY STEM EXPERIENCE
FACE TOMORROW AS A SOLDIER IN THE U.S. ARMY
The Army STEM Experience is a mobile interactive computer scenario, designed to provide a glimpse into the U.S. Army’s technological advancements, and how those advancements will help a new generation of Future Soldiers combat environmental and national threats.
The year is 2032 and a radical political faction has threatened to undermine world security. A news agency has just released a report on an explosion in an eastern European chemical plant, and the U.S. Army is on high alert. It’s now up to you and your team to rescue the trapped workers in the plant.
Enter room one and join a U.S. Army team deployed to the region to assist with humanitarian and rescue operations. Your team will brief you and provide you with the tools to solve the crisis.
Enter room two and meet your newest team member, SARAH (search and rescue autonomous hybrid). This state-of-the-art robotic assistance vehicle is designed to complete complex tasks in difficult terrain and dangerous environments. SARAH will be your main asset on your mission to both rescue workers trapped in the rubble of the chemical plant explosion and prevent an environmental catastrophe.
Enter room three and you and your team members will put SARAH to work. Navigate SARAH through the plant to find and rescue the trapped workers. Along the way, you’ll use your abilities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to neutralize hazards and breach obstacles. Once you complete your mission, you can check the scoreboard to see how you did against other STEM Experience teams.
The Army STEM Experience vehicles are part of the Mobile Exhibit Company and Mission Support Battalion based in Fort Knox, Kentucky. Each year, the Soldiers and civilians of the battalion travel thousands of miles to support Army outreach in towns and schools across the United States.
To find out how to bring the Army STEM Experience to your town or school, contact your local recruiter. You can also check out the Army STEM Experience Facebook page for news and events.
