Introduce Your Students to AEOP

One of the biggest hurdles to greater nationwide STEM literacy is a lack of awareness. That’s where you can help. Let your students (or their parents) know about AEOP programs that might be a good fit for them. You can explain how they tie in to what they’ve been learning, and how they present great opportunities to work with world class scientists and facilities.
