Brief Program Descriptions
- Young Inventors' Program® (YIP) is a New Hampshire state-wide program conducted through schools and culminating in an annual competition. YIP helps K-8 students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills by inviting them to invent solutions to everyday problems and reaches/motivates students who may not "fit the mold" for traditional sciences.
- Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) is a nation-wide independent research competition that challenges and engages over 8,000 high school students to present their research at university-held regional symposia. Winners advance to the National symposium in April and compete for scholarships.
- Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) is a 6-8 week internship providing opportunities for underserved and underrepresented high school students to conduct hands-on research and to prepare for future STEM studies at the university level.
- Longer Program definition paragraphs
Young Inventors' Program (YIP) (K-8th grade)Young Inventors' Program® (YIP) is a New Hampshire state-wide program conducted through 600 schools with 5,000 student inventors. YIP helps K-8 students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills by inviting them to invent solutions to everyday problems and reaches/motivates students who may not "fit the mold" for traditional sciences. Ongoing support is provided to teachers via a teacher manual, teacher-to-teacher training, teacher workshops and outside sources, with the goal of incorporating the invention process - creativity and problem solving - into the classroom, as well as through participation in after-school programs. The best from each school are invited to an annual invention celebration to compete for special awards.
Junior Science & Humanities Symposium (JSHS) (9th-12th grade)JSHS Supports and recognizes high school students as they present their original research pursuits in the sciences, technology, engineering and math, competing for scholarships and awards at both regional and national symposia. Students learn from their interactions with practicing researchers who provide enrichment opportunities and the symposia and discussions that allow participants to look beyond high school to future post-secondary education and career development in STEM.
Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (9th-12th grade)The Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP), an initiative in the AEOP portfolio, is a summer apprenticeship program for high school students from underrepresented and underserved populations. Student apprentices receive an educational stipend of $1500, and are required to work a minimum 200 hours for 6-8 weeks duration during the summer months. Student apprentices contribute to the research activities in a university laboratory research setting under the supervision and guidance of a qualified mentor. This one-on-one, hands on research experience is intended to develop student understanding of the process of research; to spark their curiosity and understanding of work in the sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM); and to broadly contribute to the future pipeline of talent capable of contributing to the nation's future STEM workforce.
