The NSF Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) in Engineering and Computer Science program brings science, technology, engineering, computer and information science, and mathematics (STEM) K-12 teachers and community college faculty into the university research community.

For at least 6 weeks during the summer, RET participants conduct engineering and/or computer science research in university labs and facilities, which leads to the transfer of new knowledge to classroom activities.

In addition, during the academic year there is ongoing interaction between participating university faculty and RET participants to ensure that the research experience is translated into classroom practice and that the lesson plans, curricula, and other skills developed during the summer are implemented in the classroom.

Information about particular research opportunities, the application process, and deadlines may be obtained through the relevant RET site; see below for RET site information and contact(s) for summer 2015.
