2022 Interdisciplinary Materials Research Experience for Teachers Program – Apr 4
Posted by Penn State University on March 22, 2022
The application for the 2022 Interdisciplinary Materials Research Experience for Teachers (RET) Program at Penn State is now open. The 6 week in-person program will run from June 27th – August 5th.
The goal of the RET program at Penn State is to provide opportunities for the participating STEM teachers to engage in hands-on research projects with faculty mentors in Materials Science, Chemistry, Physics, and Nanotechnology. Teachers with expertise in engineering, technology, science and math, as well as pre-service teachers, with broad interests across disciplines are eligible and encouraged to apply.
The selected cohort of educators will engage in six-weeks of research with applications to bio-engineering, chemistry, electronics, materials science, optics, opto-electronics, physics, and/or the life sciences. Additional professional development activities include seminars, demonstrations, and workshops geared towards connecting state-of-the-art research with K-12 education. In 2022, concepts of sustainability will become a core component of the professional development content. Teachers will earn a $6000 stipend ($5000 for pre-service teachers). For non-local participants, housing and reasonable travel expenses will be covered. (Meals are not included.) At the end of the summer, RET Fellows will present their projects at a scientific mini-symposium to their research collaborators, peer teachers, and undergraduates.
Deadline to apply is Monday, April 4, 2022.
