Abstract:

Each year, CRDEC annually sponsors the Summer Faculty Research and Engineering Program SFREP and the Summer Associateship Program for High School Science and Mathematics Faculty HSSMF. These summer programs are administered by the U.S. Army Research Office, Research Triangle Park, NC. Under the auspices of the SFREP, university professors are awarded up to a 12-week summer position at a Government laboratorycenter to conduct or assist in a research or engineering project. The HSSMF Program is a 10-week program in which secondary school teachers are contracted to conduct or assist in science or mathematics projects at a Government laboratorycenter. one of the main objectives of these programs is to provide a personal experience base from which faculty members may counsel and encourage students to seek science and mathematics curricula. The CRDEC has participated in both programs since inception and positive results have been achieved. Past summer achievements have contributed greatly to CRDECs mission accomplishments and our nations chemical defense program.
