I. Abstract

The Kennedy Educational Experiences Program Kennedy Educational Experiences Program (KEEP) is a job shadowing program intended to provide high school and college level students with a unique opportunity to increase their awareness of the practical application of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers through a job shadowing experience under the mentorship of a NASA Kennedy Space Center (KSC) subject matter expert. Participation in the program is limited to students who are U.S. citizens and 16 years of age or older. Students will submit (1) an application package that designates their top three areas of interest (computer science, environmental science, engineering, meteorology, physics, etc.) for the job shadowing experience and (2) recommendations from two separate science, math, or technology teachers associated with their current school of enrollment. Students may request a shadowing opportunity from 1-5 days; however the exact shadowing time period is based on the availability of the STEM mentors. This information collection extension includes changes to the instruments/forms for clarity and comprehensibility and the associated burden hours to read the instructions, gather the information, and submit. This 60-day FRN replaces FRN-2014-02-19.
