Happy holidays from the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard and
Intermediate Maintenance Facility (PSNS & IMF) Apprenticeship Program. We had fun developing a 3D ornament that would showcase our technical ability as well as elements of our Naval Shipyard. Our theme blends multiple aspects of our educational experience in the apprenticeship including: 3d drafting, gyroscopic motion, and naval vessels. This, in combination with festive colors and a lightweight and durable design, is our submission to this contest.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Olympic College Ring
Make the outer ring by combining a red “C” and a white “O” along with raised letters reading “Olympic College” to commemorate the historic relationship between OC and PSNS & IMF.
This will be the outer ring of the gyroscope design.
Step 2: PSNS & IMF Apprenticeship Ring
Make the inner ring out of green with raised letters reading “PSNS & IMF Apprenticeship”.
The color green is to signify our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices.
Step 3: Gold Center Rod
Make a center rod that will support the two scaled down vessels.
Step 4: Submarine and Aircraft Carrier
Make an aircraft carrier and a submarine to be mounted on the center rod.
Step 5: Sending the STL File to 3D Printer
Send to and print with a 3D printer, hang it on your Christmas tree and enjoy peace and tranquility this holiday season provided by the men and women that serve our Navy.
