Research Experience for Teachers Summer Program

The Research Experience for Teachers Summer 2015 Program is a  project in its third year designed to develop a means of educating middle school and high school teachers and pre-service teachers about real scientific research. This year, three teachers worked with two research professors, an education professor, and a postdoctoral fellow to develop and carry out experiments. They created presentations and posters based on their work.

The teachers also engaged in classroom activities designed to better understand the nature of science and build a framework for creating lesson plans designed around national standards and the theory of the nature of science. Currently, the teachers are finishing their lesson plans which they will test on their students. Afterward, those plans will be available on this website.
