The Manufacturing and Engineering Externship Program (MEEP) comes to Ohio in the summer of 2020. MEEP seeks to address the growing STEM skills gap in the manufacturing and engineering sectors by engaging Ohio educators in paid summer externships with local companies in STEM industries. This program is funded by a grant from the Office of Naval Research.
Through MEEP, you’ll see STEM concepts in action. Then, with professional development, you’ll develop a new project-based learning experience to take back to your classroom.
Teachers who complete the program’s requirements will receive a $2,500 stipend.
