Summer Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) Program
The Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC) at the
University of Massachusetts Amherst is soliciting applications from
middle and high school teachers for the summer RET program.
Up to six teachers will be selected to participate in research at the
Silvio O. Conte Center for Polymer Research. Participants will gain
experience under the guidance of an established research group by
investigating a topic from a broad spectrum in chemistry, physics or
engineering of polymers. Examples of projects under consideration
are: nanomembranes, crystallization in confined geometries, sensors,
and polymer deformation. Please visit the Research Groups page for
information on current MRSEC funded research, the principal
investigators involved, and potential areas of research for RETs.
The program begins the last full week of June and has a flexible
duration of 6-8 weeks. Benefits include a competitive $800/week
stipend, up to $1,000 to defray relocation expenses, six graduate
credits, and 135 PDPs.
