The RET program is an intensive, 4 week, hands-on program for 7th-12th grade teachers. This inaugural year, four teachers were selected to participate. The RET program places teachers in local life science companies to provide them with hands-on lab experience to bridge real-world skills to back the classroom.
The goal is to help build long-term collaborative partnerships between, industry scientists, and the local university research community by involving the teachers in real bioscience research and helping them translate their research experiences and new knowledge into classroom activities.
