RET - Research Experience for Teachers
The RET Site is a unique professional development opportunity that leverages the expertise of engineering scholars at Purdue University and Tuskegee University. The third year of the program will host 11 high school STEM teachers from Indiana and Alabama for six weeks during summer 2018. Complementing the research will be a series of other professional development activities, such as field trips, and presentations from members of the Industrial Advisory Board. The teachers will be provided funding and support to implement new, standards-based curricula into their science courses at their respective high schools.
