Manufacturing and Engineering Externship Program

Note: Teachers looking to apply for the program, access the complete MEEP application here

The Manufacturing and Engineering Externship Program comes to Ohio in the summer of 2020. Under the program, a select group of Ohio educators will learn about problem-based learning, complete an externship in a local STEM industry, and create a new lesson for their classroom.

Through the Ohio STEM Learning Network, Battelle is now seeking industry partners to host teachers. This program is funded by a grant from the Office of Naval Research.
