Abstract : The Science and Engineering Apprentice Programs are sponsored by the Department of Defense and administered by the University of the District of Columbia. These consist of three programs with complementary goals. Essentially, these programs follow the objectives established for all of the Department of Defense Apprentice programs. The original Science and Engineering Apprentice Program (SEAP) places high school students with scientist mentors in DOD laboratories for an eight-week period during the summer months. Teacher Networking in Technology (TNT) presents an on-campus graduate course for area science teachers during the spring semester and a follow-up laboratory research experience in DoD installation during the summer. The Science, Technology and Research Students (STARS) program exposes D.C. Public School seventh and eighth grade students to an intense, three-day immersion in career possibilities in science. All three of the above-mentioned program are discussed individually in this report.
