VB Rescue Squad
NSTS youth visited Virginia Beach's Volunteer Rescue Squad’s Station 8. The youth were able to explore the station and checking out the inside of an ambulance. The Squad has a vintage ambulance, which looks oddly like the Ghostbusters' "Ectomobile." A huge thank you to volunteer EMS workers all around the world, especially our new friends at Station 8.
Centura College Chesapeake was such a blast, that we just had to come and see what Centura College Norfolk was like. No surprise at all, this is another one of our faves. NSTS youth had a great time doing hands-on activities related to dental assisting, wind turbine energy, and nursing.
Goodbye for now! Sail Nauticus threw an end-of-the-year BBQ with the NSTS youth in their sailing class complete with burgers, hot dogs, air fried french fries, and fried Oreos. With tunes blasting and friendly competition in cornhole and tetherball, youth discussed the “Maiden,” a 60-foot sailing yacht. The Maiden was the first all-woman crew in the 1989–1990 Whitbread Round the World Race and broke not only boundaries for women but records as well. NSTS youth watched a documentary about the Maiden in a theater they had all to themselves before climbing aboard and meeting some of the yacht’s current crew.
