Students got to visit several different working labs, including the Communications & Wireless Lab, Research & Development Lab and Computer Forensics Lab.  Then over lunch, students participated in a computer forensics activity with Mr. Bill Littleton, an accomplished SPAWAR computer scientist . The students enjoyed the activity involving meta data & GPS data integrated into photographs.

“The opportunity to visit SPAWAR offered students the ability to meet with a wide range of engineers and technicians.” said Mr. Corson.  “They left with a better understanding about the various projects taking place behind the guard gate, and the important role the organization serves in our national security”, added Corson. The students also learned about opportunities for federal internships and co-op programs aimed at both high school and college students.
