USS Arlington Visiting Oakridge

Thursday, February 24, ten crew members of the USS Arlington Navy transport ship will dock at Oakridge for an exciting day of STEM centered activities with our students. Last fall, crew and students explored a variety of ship building challenges. This time they will encounter water experiments worthy of the high seas. Below are some photos of the last visit.

Facts: The USS ARLINGTON is the eighth SAN ANTONIO – class amphibious transport dock and the third ship in the Navy named after Arlington, Va. The ship is named in commemoration of the terrorist attack on the Pentagon on September 11, 2001, and therefore, steel taken from the Pentagon will be displayed on board the USS ARLINGTON.
