Freshman Reflects on Summer with the U.S. Naval Academy's STEM Program

Over the summer, freshman Norah Wright ’25 participated in the U.S. Naval Academy’s Summer STEM Program. Reflecting on her experience, she said, “The program was incredibly enriching, despite the changes made due to COVID. I liked how I could get to know my fellow teammates and interact with others who have an interest in a future in the military. In addition, I was able to talk and ask questions with Midshipmen currently at the Academy about their interests and experiences. I would definitely recommend the program to anyone who is interested.” What a meaningful way to connect with the USNA while working on problem-solving, creativity, and collaboration skills!
