The LEGACY program is three phases designed for students from sixth grade to completion of their bachelor's degree. LEGACY is intended to introduce STEM at a young age, continue growing students' interest in STEM, and eventually hire these students into a STEM driven Air Force career.
Phase 1: Craftsman is a free, STEM-inspired, hands-on camp for 6th-9th graders.
Phase 2: The Junior Apprentice phase is for 10th-12th graders to work with mentors in AFRL labs. In this phase, we are establishing future investments and developing them for STEM-discipline higher education.
Phase 3: (COMING 2018) Apprentice phase contains Plus 4 and other college programs we plan to leverage in AFRL. Plus 4 is a baccalaureate program for students where they work closely with mentors during their summer break in AFRL labs.
