ASNE is the leading professional engineering society for engineers, scientists and allied professionals who conceive, design, develop, test, construct, outfit, operate and maintain complex naval and maritime ships, submarines and aircraft and their associated systems and subsystems.  ASNE also serves the educators who train the professionals, researchers who develop related technology, and students who are preparing for the profession.  Society activities provide support for the U.S. Navy; U.S. Coast Guard; U.S. Marine Corps; U.S. Merchant Marine and U.S. Army.

ASNE is the seventh oldest technical society in the United States.  It was founded in 1888 by a group of naval engineering pioneers, most of them officers of the U.S. Navy's Engineering Corps, who sought a unified approach to their profession in order to make the most of new advances in technology. The purposes of ASNE are:           

  • to advance the knowledge and practice of naval engineering in public and private applications and operations,
  • to enhance the professionalism and well-being of members, and
  • to promote naval engineering as a career field.

For 125 years, the Society’s objectives have been strengthened and preserved to meet the changing needs of a time-honored profession. Today ASNE conducts a variety of technical meetings and symposia, publishes the highly regarded Naval Engineers Journal and a number of other technical proceedings and publications, and fosters professional development and technical information exchange through technical committees, local section activities and cooperative efforts with government organizations and other professional societies.

The Society's annual meeting, ASNE Day, is typically held in February of each year in the Washington, DC, area. The meeting features major addresses by high level industry and government leaders and panel discussions by leading members of the profession.  It also includes presentation and discussion of technical papers on a variety of timely naval engineering topics, presentation of the Society's prestigious annual awards and a large exposition with government and industry exhibits covering the full spectrum of naval engineering technology. ASNE Day is highlighted by the Society’s annual Honors Gala, attended by hundreds of executives and senior managers from both government and industry.

Our website is designed to not only serve our members, but also to support scholars, students and others interested in the varied field of naval engineering.  We welcome your suggestions on ways we can improve your experience.

FLEET for High School STEM Clubs

FLEET is a video game with many competition events throughout the year. This curriculum teaches the underlying engineering and scientific processes that will help students do better in FLEET. We use an even mix of four elements: hands-on science, dynamic instructional videos, engineering discussion topics, and pilot testing using FLEET as a virtual simulator.

Each lesson is 1-1.5 hours (we know it's easier to cut than add). There is standard alignment information within each lesson and there are additional alignment documents for a growing number of states below. Each lesson plan has a list of additional resources if you would like to extend these materials to a 15-20 week curriculum. 

NOTE: If you start by the first week of October, the "All-Star Break" is during Thanksgiving Week and the curriculum is completed before Winter Break.

What's our process? 

  

    PDF        Word

 

 

 

     
  • Technology to play YouTube video

  • Materials for record keeping 

    Students will learn about engineering design process, and then work together to create their own engineering design process. This process will be used every time they engineer solutions in future activities.
                    

Steady!! Steady!!

  • Ability to play YouTube videos to class
  • A "boat" for each group of students
  • Preferably a sink, or some container with water
  • Computers with FLEET installed
  • Copies or projection of this handout  
  Students will their engineering design process to create the most stable ship possible. They will use this knowledge while becoming familiar with FLEET and FLEET terminology.
                        

The Force is Strong in your ship!

            PDF       Word           

 

 
  • A "boat" for each group of students
  • Sink or a large container with water
  • Paper and pencil (or program where students can sketch)
  • Computers with FLEET installed
 

 First, students review Newton's Three Laws with the help of some NFL stars. Then, students take that knowledge to FLEET's Speed Test. The fastest ship has truly mastered these forces!

 

                                     

Record that Force. 

A day of data!

  • Computers that can play Java-based simulation
  • Computers with FLEET installed
   Students work with forces on a traditional ramp simulator. They draw free-body diagram and answer questions about the forces shown. Then, students apply this knowledge to FLEET's Speed Test.
              

Designing for Buoyancy

  • Computers that can play Flash.
  • Computers set up with FLEET
  • (optional) Ability to play YouTube videos to class
  • (optional) A paper copy of the website for instructor use.
 

 

Students will use an engaging simulator of buoyancy forces to explore how volume, density and buoyancy force are related, especially for materials of two or more materials. Then, students will test the ideas in FLEET's Maneuverability Test. Multiple possibilities for closing activities.
