Nebraska Nanoscale Facility offers summer research for teachers

The Nebraska Nanoscale Facility is offering research experiences for teachers this summer.

The first is a four-day virtual workshop called NanoSIMST, which is paid and open to middle school science teachers and runs June 14-17.

The other opportunity is the Summer RET program for high school and community college science teachers. This is a paid, six-week research internship with the NNCI groups in several departments on campus. The teachers will be chosen by a lab, perform a research project with them, and then develop a lesson to be used in their classroom the next school year. This grant also includes a paid trip to the national NSTA meeting in Atlanta, Georgia, next year.

Registration for both events ends April 16. They will take up to 10 teachers for the NanoSIMST, and three openings left for the RET.
