Research Experience for Teachers

RET Program for Summer 2020

 Proposed Dates: July 6 – August 14, 2020


Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the CCMR Educational Programs Office has cancelled

the 2020 RET program


 Team-RET provides middle school, high school and community college math and science teachers with an intense, six-week period of in-depth  study at the CCMR laboratories with facility managers, faculty, and graduate students. In the Team-RET program, five select science teachers  spend the first five weeks primarily in the CCMR Shared Facilities. They work together as a team to understand how the equipment in the facility  works and to solve research problems set out by the facility manager. The sixth week is dedicated to developing a materials science related  lesson plan based on their experience in the facilities. Copies of Team-RET alumni lesson plans can be found on our RET Modules page.

We will also be offering an Independent-RET program this summer as well. This opportunity is only available to teachers who have completed the  CCMR Team-RET program.

“The RET program here was exciting, engaging, thought provoking and edifying. I was exposed to instruments I had only heard about and understood in theory… I can’t thank CCMR enough.”

~Sydney Mendez, Chemistry Teacher, Nottingham High School, Syracuse, NY
