Research Experiences for Teachers (RET)
This exciting fully online summer program gives K-12 and informal STEM educators from across the country the chance to learn how to incorporate culturally responsive teaching into their STEM lesson plans while working with MagLab scientists and educators.
The MagLab is a National Science Foundation funded facility that houses interdisciplinary research with both in-house staff as well as users who are making breakthroughs in STEM. Our 2021 and 2022 MagLab Research Experience for Teachers program were online due to the COVID 19 pandemic. We are currently making plans for the 2023 program. Please return to this site in January of 2023 for more information.
Unfortunately, due to our funding source, only US citizens or permanent residents (Green card holders) are eligible for this program.
RET Class of 2021
Our RET class of 2021 developed science lesson plans that incorporated culturally responsive pedagogy. These educators learned how to connect MagLab science and engineering into their lessons so that they could be more inclusive of all students. This is the first time our educators have developed lesson plans that are now available to others. We encourage you to take these plans as a foundation and tailor them for your students.
