    The Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) hosts GEMS camp

    The U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center’s Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) recently held a Gains in Education in Mathematics & Science (GEMS) camp. The program is part of the Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP), which exposes young people to career paths in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), and which offers many options ranging from middle school to graduate studies. Traditionally, CERL hosts a middle school and a high school GEMS camp each summer.

    Starting with STEM: ERDC researchers climb from after-school robotics to branch chief

    At Anna Miller Jordan’s very first robotics team practice as a high-school senior in 2005, she was deemed responsible for piloting a robot to shoot balls into a net, once her classmate Alan Katzenmeyer steered the bot down the court toward the goal. Now, 15 years later, Jordan and Katzenmeyer are both still leading teams at the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC). But today, instead of high-school peers, those teams are made up of scientists, engineers and researchers working to solve some of the nation’s toughest challenges.
