The Army Education Outreach Program, or AEOP, is the Army’s platform for advancing STEM education and literacy through STEM experiences, internships and competitions. From solar car competitions to bringing teachers into military research facilities, the program is very broad. More than 31,000 participants benefited from AEOP just last year.
For the Army, that’s not enough. They aim for it to grow 68,000 participants by 2025. To get there, the AEOP consortium is reaching out to new partners. Hear from a few of these new partners and learn how your organization might join.
