District 49 Students Honor Veterans Day

Navy Petty Officer 1st Class Stuart Simpson, Navy Recruiting District Denver, meets with a seventh and eighth grade science class Nov. 12 at Patriot Learning Center in Falcon School District 49. Simpson, a hull maintenance technician, discussed his military career, as the students finished waterproofing motors for a SeaPerch project, which involves creating underwater, remotely operated vehicles. The robotics program teaches important science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills, according to science teacher Paul Austin, as well as provides hands-on experience with naval architecture and marine engineering. Three servicemembers were visiting the school as a tribute to Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
