Annual MAST Events

The Annual MAST Open House & Technology Expo and Annual Naval Technology Exercise (ANTX) is a collaboration with Naval Base Ventura County, EDC-VC and GT2 in coordination with the annual Coastal Trident Exercise. This event fosters leading edge technological innovation and integration in a port and maritime environment.

STEM & STEAM Experience: The MAST Expo includes a unique opportunity for students to connect with and learn about high technology companies and the products they create. From drones and underwater vehicles to computers, robots, and sensors, students are able to see demonstrations, meet technology developers, and perhaps even spark a passion to create the future entrepreneur.
