Summer 2018 Research Experience for (High School Science/Biology/Chemistry) Teachers (SRET) Program
Currently looking for 2 high school teachers of science, biology, or chemistry to participate in a Summer Research Experience for Teacher (SRET) program that is sponsored by the National Science Foundation. Participants will be given a stipend of $5,000 to spend 6 weeks in my lab over the summer of 2018 conducting cutting edge experiments that contribute to one of our ongoing gene therapy research projects. After the conclusion of the SRET, I will also work with each participant to develop a lesson plan in which the teacher will share their SRET experience with their students in the following academic year. The lesson will include a description of the experiment(s), analysis of data, and videos of the teacher performing actual experiments to personalize the lesson. After that lesson, a short survey will also be given to the students to assess the impact of the lesson on their career goals.
Any interested applicants should submit questions and/or their resume to Dr. Elmer (firstname.lastname@example.org) by April 1st, 2018.
