Many students approach math and science problems like they're solving puzzles. For U.S. Navy cryptologists, they've learned to use math and science to solve real puzzles every day. To celebrate Navy Week (May 8 - May 12), these professional code breakers will visit APS schools and talk to students about the importance of math and science in their careers.
This group will show slides of their military experience, talk to students about the mission of code breakers in the Navy and bring in personal mementos from their jobs all over the world.
"We hope by showing our demonstration we might stir some excitement for these bright young future leaders of our great nation, and demonstrate to them how what they are learning today is vital to our nation's future," said Navy cryptologist Mark Savage.
The U.S. Navy cryptologists are scheduled to speak at the following APS school:
Sable Elementary School, 2601 Sable Blvd.
Friday, May 12, 9:30 a.m.
They have visited students at Iowa Elementary School and Murphy Creek K-8 School.
