U.S. Army’s Mobile Exhibit to Visit Knoxville-area Schools

One of the U.S. Army’s new mobile exhibits will be visiting Knoxville-area schools Nov. 14-16.

 

The Army’s STEM vehicle is an interactive Science, Technology, Engineering and Math exhibit. It’s designed to showcase hi-tech capabilities and opportunities within the Army while generating quality leads for local recruiters.

 

“We’re very happy to have the STEM vehicle in the Knoxville area,” said Capt. Andrew Deel who commands the Knoxville U.S. Army Recruiting Company. “This is an impressive display, and to land an appearance in this area will really help us show a side of the Army the public doesn’t always see.”

 

The STEM experience includes a series of 3 different rooms: the Situation Room, the Mission Room, and the Research and Development Room. The entire experience takes approximately15 minutes.

 

The STEM vehicle’s first appearance will be at the L & N STEM Academy on Nov. 14. Exhibit times are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The academy is located at 401 Henley St.

 

Media wishing to cover the STEM vehicle’s appearance at the L & N STEM Academy should contact Lee Elder at (615) 871-4172 or 615 854-1799. Email is miles.l.elder.civ@mail.mil.

 

Other appearances are scheduled for Karns (Nov. 15) and Farragut (Nov. 16) high schools.
