This letter is to call your attention to an activity that will enable K-12 science educators to participate in projects funded by the Directorate for Biological Sciences (BIO) at the National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal of the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) activity is to enhance the professional development of K-12 science educators through research experience at the emerging frontiers of science in order to bring new knowledge into the classroom. BIO strongly encourages all its grantees to make special efforts to identify talented teachers who can participate in this RET supplement activity to integrate research and education.
This program provides educational opportunities for K-12 Educators. Individuals interested in applying for funding should see the program guidelines above.
