“"I would like to let you know what a positive influence the program has been for our Bozeman High School (Montana) student participants. I teach physics and my students enjoy science very much and seek many avenues in which to satisfy their quest for scientific knowledge. Whenever I mention the opportunities available through the Research and Engineering Apprenticeship Program, I get many enthusiastic requests for applications. Those who have participated have told me how much they appreciated their summer work experience. It is apparent that their love of science was enhanced through the program. They speak proudly of their research. These students returned to pursue engineering careers. Those that have been fortunate enough to participate have told others about their wonderful experience, therefore, I have students inquiring if such an opportunity would be available for them. I am grateful for the opportunities that REAP has given my students."

For Teachers and Educators

We know you want your students to succeed. But it's almost a full-time job to keep them motivated working hard on preparing for the on-rushing future. And maybe you, like us, understand the critical need in our nation to interest more students in the STEM professions. We're here to help.

The Academy of Applied Science administers a variety of programs designed to support teachers and educators in providing scholarship and apprenticeship opportunities for students in science and engineering. We welcome your help to connect us and our programs to your most promising students. We rely heavily on recommendations from you the teachers and educators who know these students the best for recommendations to participate in many of our programs.

We also provide creativity-inspiring invention-based ciricula to schools with students in grades K-12 (Young Inventors' Program). Supported by the Meant to Invent! Teachers' Guide, the program can be woven into your classroom curriculum. This guide combines the concept of inventing with the process of creative thinking, critical thinking and creative problem solving helping you provide experiences and activities designed to bring the student in touch with the learning process. Teacher training workshops are also available. We can even pair you with a mentor who have run the program in his or her own classroom and can provide critical guidance.

For high school and undergraduate students, we administer the U.S. Army AEOP apprenticeship program. These are unique opportunities for high school and undergraduate students to conduct real-world, Army-sponsored research alongside scientists and engineers in world-class facilities. Student gain hands-on work experience over the course of 5 to 8 weeks and receive financial stipends.

Apprentices must be US citizens or legal residents. For more details about eligibility and to find an apprenticeship near you, visit:
