2013 Research Experience for Teachers Program at Penn State

During the summer 2013, the Center for Nanoscale Science will host a Research Experience for Teachers (RET) Program from June 24 to August 02. Engineering, technology, science and math teachers with broad interests across disciplines focusing on nanotechnology are eligible to apply. Attached is the promotional flier for the program.

The chosen teachers taking part in this six-week program will receive hands-on nanoscience and technology experience through research, with applications to bio-engineering, chemistry, electronics, materials science, optics, optoelectronics, physics, and life sciences. A scientific convocation, attended by all RET fellows, will be held in August to allow the RET fellows the opportunity to present their research work to their peers in mini-symposium and a poster presentation. RET fellows are encourage to develop a lesson plan and/or modular curriculum based on their research topic.
