Promoting STEM Education through the Air Force Outreach Program

Carl Buhler

The Air Force STEM Outreach program hosts a number of educational events, activities, and programs dedicated to helping young people access quality education in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Under this initiative, K-12 STEM programs are offered at Air Force bases across the United States.

The Air Force STEM Outreach website also lists internship and apprenticeship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students. Students in the Consortium Research Fellows Program can work alongside Department of Defense personnel on projects related to defense technology. Additionally, the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education brings together scientists from the Department of Energy and interested college and high school students to conduct research that helps shape a range of government energy policies.
