High school teachers sought for summer research experiences

Author: Julie Flory and Gail Hinchion Mancini


The University of Notre Dame’s Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning is now accepting applications from area high school science and mathematics teachers for a summer program called Research Experience for Teachers at Notre Dame (RET@ND).

Program participants earn stipends for experiences that place them in Notre Dame science and engineering laboratories to learn research techniques. Participating teachers then are encouraged to build those techniques into their own classroom curricula.

Applications are available on the Kaneb Center Web site, http://www.nd.edu/~kaneb , or inquiries may be directed to the center at 574-631-9146.

Founded in 1996 and named for Notre Dame alumnus and benefactor John A. Kaneb, the Center supports a variety of initiatives designed to stimulate reflection about teaching and learning.

RET@ND is supported by the National Science and Siemens Foundations.
