Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM)
STEM Outreach Events
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) outreach events are a great way to help K-12 students become interested in these fields. CRUSER sponsors STEM outreach events as well as participates in larger NPS or other community STEM outreach events.
Please contact us at CRUSER@nps.edu for information about STEM events.
CRUSER has an intern program for High School and College students to work on projects in the Advanced Robotic Systems ENgineering Laboratory (ARSENL). Intern positions are available on a volunteer & paid basis.
Currently paid positions are available through the Navy Research Enterprise Internship Program (NREIP) for college students & the Science & Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) for high school students. Please consult the websites for additional details and deadlines.
Contact CRUSER@nps.edu for additional details about volunteer positions.
