Full course description

The Research Experience for Teachers RET is a Year-Long NanoEngineering Exploration from the Lab to the Classroom program designed to bring cutting-edge nanoengineering research in sustainable energy transition, clean water, and improved diagnostics and therapeutics into 5th-12th grade science classrooms. The program works with high-needs school districts in the greater Houston area, supporting science teachers as they conduct research with Rice University's top-tier nanoengineering research faculty and facilities. The program includes a 6-week immersive laboratory internship and support throughout the academic year.

Participants observe and actively work in innovative research while developing inquiry-based lesson plans that apply R-STEM and Rice research, using digital media and other strategies to bring the laboratory experience to students.
