Sioux Falls is one of fifteen cities across the country with a chance to figure out how the Navy maintains, trains, and equips combat-ready Naval forces.
"We wanted to make sure that we reached out and had a presence here and were able to interact with people in Sioux Falls to show them what we're doing on the Navy side," said Lt. Commander Sarah Blansett.
Science and engineering are two critical aspects to the Navy's services to the country.
"We've got a MUDSEW diving team. That's mobile salvage unit. They're going to be here doing presentations to attendees and showing them equipment," said Blansett. "And, what they do on a daily basis and how they contribute to the Navy's mission."
Divers, parachuters, and the Navy's band were showcased during Navy Week.
"(We) give people a front-row seat to find out what some of the people in the Navy do. And, how does science impact their job and their role."
The Washington Pavilion's Kirby Science Discovery Center is celebrating Navy Week and the Science Festival by being open to the public for free on Friday, July 27, 2012 from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m.
