The University of New Hampshire Dept. of Engineering and The Joan and James Leitzel Center for Mathematics, Science, and Engineering Education is offering its Research Experience for Teachers in Engineering program. This is the 8th consecutive year UNH has provided this opportunity for middle and high school teachers. Please review the program description and information on teacher benefits and expectations for participation. At the bottom you will find instructions on how to apply for the program. There are 12 slots for this year’s program. Application review will begin on May 4.
The Research Experiences for Teachers in Engineering (RETE) program is funded by the National Science Foundation's Directorate for Engineering (ENG-1711701) The specific goals for the RETE are to:
The 2019 RETE will be held at the UNH campus in Durham, NH during the summer. The program will run from Monday, June 24 to Friday, August 2, 2019. The duration will be six continuous weeks (there is scheduling flexibility for July 4 and vacations), with up to seven days of activities during the academic year. Activities take place during a normal five-day per week schedule with holidays and weekends off (except where research schedule dictates). This is a full-time commitment. Room and board (in a single-occupancy UNH dormitory) is provided for individuals wishing to stay on campus to minimize commuting time and expenses and to take full advantage of university resources (laboratories, libraries, computer clusters, etc.). Commuters will receive a meal card loaded with some meals for lunch and for occasional dinners with the group.
Benefits to participating in the program include:
