High school students and their teachers meet with experienced research mentors once a month to design and execute STEM research as part of the AEOP Student STEM Research Academy. The SMT Center and UNC-Charlotte Center for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education are leading this initiative to enhance the opportunities for students in rural, traditionally under-resourced areas to pursue STEM research. Students are expected to develop research plans, conduct research, analyze data and prepare research posters. The program culminates with the students presenting their research at the NC Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. Funding for this initiative is provided by the US Army’s Army Education Outreach Program.
