Research Experience for Teachers at CCMR

MRSEC center: 
Cornell University

Next Team-RET Program:

July 1 - August 9, 2013, at Cornell Unversity, Ithaca, NY

Team-RET provides middle school, high school and community college math and science teachers with an intense, six-week period of in-depth study at the CCMR laboratories with facility managers, faculty, and graduate students. In the Team-RET program, six select science teachers spend the first five weeks primarily in the CCMR Shared Facilities. They work together as a team to understand how the equipment in the facility works and to solve research problems set out by the facility manager. The sixth week is dedicated to developing a materials science related lesson plan based on their experience in the facilities. Copies of Team-RET alumni lesson plans can be found on our RET Modules page. In the 10 years since the RET program's inception at CCMR, 57 teachers have participated.
