The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) joined forces with the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab and the Office of Naval Research to connect with the children of wounded warriors and other service members. The CONVEY Workshop uses virtual and augmented reality to expose the students to STEM learning.

A group of more than twenty middle school-aged children had the chance to learn these exciting lessons during a two-day workshop earlier this month at USU.
