HATTIESBURG, MISS. – The Army’s Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is scheduled to visit area schools Sept. 24 and 25.
“We are really excited to bring this asset our area high schools. The STEM is an 18 wheel tractor trailer that is self-contained and climate controlled,” said Capt. Greg Doyen, Hattiesburg Company Commander. “It is an interactive exhibit with state of the art technology focused on STEM.”
The STEM is designed to showcase high tech capabilities and opportunities by having students experience the Situation Room, the Mission Room, and the Research and Development Room.

The STEM Semi will visit Hattiesburg High School and Petal High School respectively.
