As part of Fargo’s Navy Week (July 19-25), Sailors from the US Navy’s Explosive Ordnance Disposal Group will be visiting MSUM’s campus, Thursday, July 22nd from 1:00pm-3:30pm. Sailors will interact with College for Kids & Teens students & staff, particularly focusing on the Minecraft & Lego robotics course. There will be a robot explosive ordnance disposal system on campus and sailors will demonstrate how they use STEM technology to protect service members & civilians. The event will be open to students, faculty, and staff to watch, ask questions, and interact with Navy personnel.
Navy Weeks are a series of outreach events coordinated by the Navy Office of Community Outreach designed to give Americans an opportunity to learn about the Navy, its people, and its importance to national security and prosperity. Since 2005, the Navy Week program has served as the Navy’s flagship outreach effort into areas of the country without a significant Navy presence, providing the public a firsthand look at why the Navy matters to the Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo communities. The week will conclude at the “Fargo Air Sho,” Sunday, July 25, where attendees can interact with their U.S. Navy sailors throughout the day.
