Gains in the Education of Mathematics and Science (GEMS): GEMS is a one week hands-on program available throughout the summer for rising 7th through 12th graders aimed at involving and engaging young people with STEM early in their academic careers. The program uses a multi-disciplinary educational curriculum with age-appropriate, hands-on activities in a teaching laboratory. Students may choose either a biomedical or engineering focus. Visit the GEMS website for more information and application.
High School Apprenticeship Program (HSAP): Since 1981, the WRAIR has accepted academically advanced high school students to participate in hands-on research experiences in research laboratories under the direction of scientists-mentors during the summer. SEAP students gain scientific experience and present their research at the end of the program. Visit the US Army Educational Outreach Program Website at HSAP to apply.
