Earlier this month, HEMI’s four Research Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) interns culminated their experience with a presentation and award ceremony. In attendance were friends, family, mentors, HEMI Fellows, and representatives from the U. S. Army – Dr. Sikhanda Satapathy (Cooperative Agreement Manager for MEDE CRA) and Brian Leftridge (U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command).
Each student summarized her research experience, answered questions, and were then awarded with a certificate of completion.
REAP is a summer STEM program that places talented high school students, from groups historically underserved in STEM, in research apprenticeships at area colleges and universities. REAP apprentices work under the direct supervision of a mentor on a hands-on research project. REAP apprentices are exposed to the real world of research, they gain valuable mentorship, and they learn about education and career opportunities in STEM.
