The Academy’s Programs

REAP

Research Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP): Provides opportunities for all high school students, including underrepresented groups, to gain hands-on work experience in scientific research and development programs on a university level. REAP students are exposed to real world scientific research and are able to see themselves making a living as scientists and researchers. Selected students are awarded a stipend for their summer research experience in a university lab. All students must apply via the AEOP using the following link: http://www.usaeop.com

JSHS

Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (JSHS): Challenges and engages students in grades 9 through 12 in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Student participants compete for scholarships and recognition on a national level by presenting original research efforts before a panel of judges during the annual symposium. Every year, more than 10,000 students participate in the 48 Regional Symposia held on university campuses across the country and in Alaska, Puerto Rico and Department of Defense schools in Europe and the Pacific. Participants interact with and hear presentations by practicing scientists and engineers. Selected student participants make oral presentations of their experimental research.

Young Inventors’ Program®

Young Inventors’ Program®: Developed for K-8 students, the program helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills by challenging them invent solutions to everyday solutions. The program encourages exploration and participation by those students who may not “fit the mold” for traditional sciences. Ongoing support is provided to teachers via a manual, training workshops, and outside sources to help weave the invention process—creativity and problem solving—into the classroom and after-school programs. A yearly celebration provides participating students a venue to showcase their creativity and compete for awards and recognition.

NSAP

Naval Science Awards Program (NSAP): A program of the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps that is administered by the Academy of Applied Science. The program was established to encourage the interest of high school students to pursue careers in science or engineering by rewarding their scientific achievements through scholarships. The program provides scholarship awards to over 300 local, regional and state science and engineering fairs in which high school students exhibit their projects.
