Students Come to Learn About FTV

Today we had Hanson Middle School visit MMA to learn about FTV. Their your started off with a presentation by Admiral Richard Gurnon on navigation and the purpose of FTV. After meeting Adm. Gurnon they went off in groups to various parts of the campus to learn about what was going on and the preparations for sea term. Some of their stops included the bridge simulator, ship tour, emergency management simulator, and in the seamanship lab the students learned a few knots. Not only did the middle school students from Hanson, MA have a great time at MMA but we really enjoyed meeting all of them. It is great to get to know the students that will be reading our blog. We hope to keep in touch with them as we head out to sea and any others that are following our voyage.
