After retiring, Sanchez worked for Acquisition Planning Corp., in Washington, D.C., and then Lockheed Martin, where he worked in a number of engineering, functional and program management positions.

If you have ever wanted to know how a submarine works or what it’s like inside, this is your chance. This submarine presentation, geared towards middle-school students, will take you through the complex world of submarines. You will learn about the history of submarines, types of submarines, how they are built, what it takes to be a submariner, the types of people who work on submarines, and watch some fascinating short videos.

TACNY Junior Cafe Scientifique, a program for middle-school students, features discussions between scientists and students about topics in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics in an informal atmosphere and seeks to encourage students to consider careers in these areas. Students must be accompanied by an adult and can explore the MOST at no cost after the event.
