My Own Creations (M.O.C.) for Our Own Culture STEM Diversity Program
We use LEGO ships of our own creation displayed with portraits and biographies of women and minority military officers, mariners, engineers, scientists, inventors, chemists, mathematicians and others, to educate about their contributions to the American STEM mosaic our culture and our history.
We do this with the TEACHFLEET world's largest LEGO ship display of over 200 M.O.C. ships. We also conduct STEM diversity workshops and contests where participants can build their own ships and name them after a STEM contributor of their choice.
Our program celebrates the rich diversity of the American STEM mosaic by not only using different brightly colored LEGO bricks, but by also highlighting the contributions of women and people of color to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and also the maritime industry.
The TEACH FLEET has over 200 LEGO ships that are M.O.C's. (my own creations) named in honor of women and people of color. Each is built from scratch to represent a type of ship related to the profession of its namesake, for instance, a hospital ship would be named for a doctor.
We use LEGO ships displayed with portraits and biographies to educate about the contributions of women and minority military officers, mariners, engineers, scientists, inventors, chemists, mathematicians and others.
