Research Experiences for Teachers

The goal of the RET program is to broaden the impact of our REU-site to K-12 science teachers. Selected teachers will use their current scientific understandings, abilities and interests to make gains in intellectual professional growth, not merely technical training. Teachers will simultaneously act as sources of their own development, supporters of the development of REU students, and communicators of research experiences to their high school classes and institutions.


Teachers spend the last 6 weeks (of the 10-week REU period) in residence at UAB interacting with REU students and faculty mentors.
