Volunteers help budding engineers and scientistsVolunteers who supported the 2017 Young Engineers and Scientists! of Ridgecrest Conference at Naval Air Warfare Center Weapons Division are joined by Dan Carreño, left, director of the Weapons and Energetics Department, following a Feb. 13 appreciation ceremony at China Lake. The 7th annual event hosted 145 students, its largest attendance yet. “The fact that you all gave up your time to really give back to the youth shows character,” Carreño said. “You just never know the seed that you plant when you’re out there sharing your passion, so take pride in that. Thank you for your service to your community, to WD and to the Navy.” — U.S. Navy photo by Paul Kakert
