Time is Running Out! Take a Look at this Great Opportunity for High School Students Interested in Science and Engineering Careers!

SEAP

The Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer. The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further their education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN. SEAP provided competitive research internships to over 265 high school students this year. Participating students spend eight weeks during the summer doing research at 25 DoN laboratories. To learn more and apply click here http://seap.asee.org/

Deadline Extended to December 4, 2015!
