USAEOP’s Program Shifts Due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
By now, we are certain that you have received countless communications regarding the evolving public health crisis concerning COVID-19 (coronavirus). Due to ongoing developments, and in consideration of the health and wellness of our students, teachers, volunteers and mentors, we are implementing immediately the following programmatic changes:
Level 1 and Level 2 participants will now be combined for an enhanced Level 1 experience. The new Level 1 experience will include 3 Modules of online professional development with approximately 30 hours each. Everyone will participate in online interviews with scientists and engineers at Army Research Centers and Labs.
Changes made on a site-by-site basis. Most sites are switching to virtual programs. Some sites have canceled programming. Some sites have moved their dates.
Please note that these changes apply primarily to national Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) events. Though we encourage local programs to adhere to these directives, local program leaders will also be free to abide by local and regional recommendations.
Though this ongoing crisis changes our day-to-day lives, with preparation, preventative measures and adherence to national and state public health authority recommendations, we can work together to keep our communities safe during these uncertain times.
