Abstract : The year 1996-97 represented our fifteenth successful DoD Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program for High School Students at Florida State University, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. The program this year was again administered by the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Institute (GFDI) under the direction of Dr. Richard L. Pfeffer. Student educational activities and work experiences were centered at GFDI. In the spring of 1996, the guidance counselors of five local high schools were asked to recommend outstanding college-bound students who they thought would benefit most from our program. Ten students were selected to participate starting in the summer of 1996 and thirteen during the school year, 2 of whom were from the summer program, 6 of whom were from last year's program, and 5 new students during the academic year. Our student group consisted of 9 seniors, 7 juniors and 5 exceptional sophomores. The departure from our past concentration on seniors was motivated by our desire to expose students to science and scientific methodology at an earlier age. Some background information concerning the students who were selected appears in the following section. Further information pertaining to each apprentice is attached at the end of the report.
