F.L.E.E.T. is an innovative, competitive ship design video game for high school students interested in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The competition is free to U.S. students in grades nine through twelve. FLEET utilizes the youth friendly model of gamification to engage high school students in naval ship design and enables them to apply the real-life applications of STEM. Working individually, students compete via a web-based platform to complete several scenarios faced by naval engineers on a daily basis in the field. The entire competition occurs online. The competition opens January 13, 2017 and must be completed by April 30, 2017. Exceptional student performers will be invited to a capstone event for an onsite competition to be held in May 24-25, 2017 at the Intelligent Ships Symposium XII in Philadelphia, PA.
Teachers may apply for up to $500 in funding each year to aid in supporting teachers and schools seeking to enhance classwork learning for their students. The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) is currently seeking mini-grant applications for the 2016-2017 academic year. Funds may be used to offset the costs for schools with limited access to technology, cover additional educator hours to staff after school clubs, or other needs as identified by the school. To apply for the mini-grant, please complete the 2016-2017 mini-grant application and submit it electronically to email@example.com. Teachers may apply for up to $500 in funding each year. All mini-grant applications will be considered on a rolling basis through March 30, 2017 for this year’s competition. Download an application package here.
