LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A concern about American students lagging behind other countries in critical subjects prompted a program to send Naval Cadets to two Louisville schools.

On Friday three sailors stopped by Whitfield Academy and Christian Academy to have some fun and show students how math and science are used in the U.S. Naval Academy.

Zachary Dannelly, a 3rd Class Midshipman US Naval Academy and 2012 graduate of Christian Academy said, "The electricity they use, the water they use, computers have become so integrated that it's fun to tell the kids pretty much everything you use on a daily basis has some foundation in that."

The visit was part of the U.S. Naval Academies Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics outreach program. To learn more about the program, click here.
