Two High School Students Participating in ARO REAP

Austin Logan of Timber Creek High School and Jennifer Bernal of University High School were selected to participate in the 2015 ARO REAP program.

REAP is part of the portfolio of opportunities funded by the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) in the effort to encourage Americans to pursue education and careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) to ultimately fulfill the nation's economic and security needs.

REAP is a summer program that places talented high school students, from groups historically under-represented and underserved in STEM, in research apprenticeships at pre-determined area colleges and universities with the Center of Research in Computer Vision at UCF being one of them. Each REAP apprentice works under the direct supervision of a scientist or engineer on a hands-on research project. Through the REAP experience, apprentices are exposed to the real world of research, they gain valuable mentorship, and they learn about education and career opportunities in STEM.

REAP apprenticeships are 6-8 weeks in length (minimum of 200 hours) and apprentices receive a stipend of $1,500 for their participation.
