Science Honor Society Takes Field Trip

By Arielle Gordon, Editor-in-Chief

Twenty-three Science National Honor Society (SNHS) students took a field trip April 8 to the David Taylor Model Basin, a ship design facility operated by the Naval Surface Warfare Center.

The students took a tour guided by two engineers who work at the Model Basin. The students asked the engineers questions about their work and viewed one of the model pools that is five-eighths of a mile in length.

“I learned about different career paths for mechanical engineers, and how important they are for keeping Americans safe,” senior and SNHS president Bradley Lawrence said. “My favorite part of the trip was when we went into an underground testing facility of model ships.”
