HEMI, in conjunction with the Johns Hopkins Center for Educational Outreach, has received a $50,000 grant from the Army Educational Outreach Program to facilitate meaningful collaboration that will ultimately integrate with or enhance the suite of opportunities already offered by AEOP. The Johns Hopkins partnership is one of three second-round awardees, who join a community of eight like-minded AEOP partner organizations awarded competitive grants in April 2016.
CEO operates 11 STEM programs which engage over 2,200 middle and high school students annually from underserved communities, and will combine with Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS). The partnership will also integrate Research & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (REAP) and Engineering Innovation into the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) program and expand mentorship, competition and research opportunities for female and military-connected students.
AEOP offers students and teachers Army-sponsored programs that effectively engage, inspire and attract the next generation of STEM talent.
