Nate Simpkins LUNATECS Captain Earns Seat at SEAP. The 2017-18 LUNATECs team captain, Nate Simpkins, is excited to announce that he was accepted in the 2018 SEAP Summer Internship Program. According to the SEAP website, “The Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program (SEAP) provides an opportunity for students to participate in research at a Department of Navy (DoN) laboratory during the summer. The goals of SEAP are to encourage participating students to pursue science and engineering careers, to further their education via mentoring by laboratory personnel and their participation in research, and to make them aware of DoN research and technology efforts, which can lead to employment within the DoN.”
Nate was selected as an apprentice for the 2018 Office of Naval Research SEAP opportunity at the Philadelphia Naval Warfare Center. All of South Jersey Robotics and the LUNATECS are proud of Nate’s outstanding accomplishment.
