35th Signal Brigade showcases technology for students

Feb 13, 2013 (M2 PRESSWIRE via COMTEX) -- AIKEN, S.C. (Feb. 12, 2013) -- Fort Gordon, Ga., service members have long made an active and positive contribution in the Central Savannah River Area, and 35th Signal Brigade Soldiers continued that tradition during a recent community outing.

Soldiers from the brigade's 63rd Signal Battalion (Expeditionary), participated in the 27th annual Ruth Patrick Science Education Enrichment Day, or SEED at the University of South Carolina Aiken Campus, Oct. 13, 2012.

More than 3,300 people were at the event.

"SEED serves to connect and inspire the citizens of the CSRA, especially our youth, with the wonders of science, technology, engineering and mathematics and the joy of discovery," said John Hutchens, the director of special programs for the Ruth Patrick Science Center.

The Satellite Transportable Terminal, or STT, display was among other activities that demonstrated science, technology and engineering innovations from corporations, museums, national labs and educators.

According to Spc. Adrian A. De La Rosa, a satellite communications operator maintainer assigned to A Company, 63 ESB, adults many asked questions on the capabilities of the equipment and what personnel do in the military in general.

De La Rosa explained how the STT provides phone and Internet communications on the battlefield in minutes.

"Many high school, junior high and middle school students ask general questions of what we do on a day-to-day basis," said De La Rosa.

Kristy Grabczynski, a mother of four and an Evans, Ga., native, brought her sons Joe, 9, and Matt, 7, to the event.

"I am always amazed with the technology that is involved," Grabzcynski said. "To be able to explain how it works in the field, it's impressive on the youth today." Other members of the community were impressed by the technological advancement of the 35th TTSB equipment.

"I appreciate the insight of how the military uses communication systems to support the front lines," said Andrew Hendrix, the director of admissions for USCAiken. "As someone who has never served in the military, I have respect for the actions and sacrifices of our service members."
