RMEP On The Move

Need an idea for a summer program for your child to participate in….. well think about RMEP.


Richmond Minorities in Engineering Partnership.

Three week program for students interested in engineering.

RMEP, formally known as RAPME, is a local non-profit organization, founded in 1978, with a goal to achieve greater diversity in science and engineering.

We are an organization in which minority middle and high school students are encouraged to consider a Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math (STEM) profession, thereby assisting in the national effort to alleviate under representation of minorities in all engineering professions.

Check out our website- RvaMEP.org for more information, the application, and testimonials from former participants.

If you have any specific questions, feel free to contact us at RvaMEP@gmail.com

Open to rising 7th—12th graders.

Applications available at



Our participants are advised on the merits of taking as many math and science courses in middle and high school as possible. Our Summer Engineering Institute classes are taught by engaged and enthusiastic teachers, who use hands-on and minds-on activities, making science and math fun and interesting. This not only helps students to learn, but also plants the “seed of interest” that could grow into an exciting and rewarding STEM career.
