Meet our MembersUntitled

Alexa Gonzalez, age 10

(partnered with Dayana Flores)

“The Club has a lot of activities for kids to have fun and to think about their futures.”

 

Alexa’s friend, Dayana, encouraged her to join the Club. Alexa says she likes the Club’s “awesome” programs like SeaPerch, a partnership between the Club and Naval Surface Warfare Center, Port Hueneme Division. (This innovative program stimulates students’ interest in science, technology, engineering and math.) In SeaPerch, she and Dayana constructed “The Blue Whale,” a robotic submarine that motored underwater with the aid of two propellers. Alexa, whose favorite subject is math, enjoyed the process of building and testing her submarine.

 

Alexa says when she grows up, she wants to be a mechanical engineer or an architect.
