(DefenseVideoImagery)  Six high school students and three educators are spending a couple of weeks with the U.S. Army Research Laboratory learning about additive manufacturing and computer-aided design concepts. As part of a federal program from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, the Joint Science and Technology Institute is a fully-funded, residential science, technology, engineering and mathematics research program for current high school students in the United States and Department of Defense schools around the world, as well as teachers.
“We’re involved in a program with JSTI to do some research or learn some things so we can take it back to our schools and share with our students what’s happening out in the real world,” said Raye Pedigo, a high school physics and calculus teacher in Jefferson County, Tennessee.
