Application for the Research Experience for Teachers Summer 2024 is OPEN.

The SC RET program enables teachers to engage in a 6-week immensive research experiences at an institution in their local area. These experiences (the first for many SC teachers) expose teachers to modern research methods and allow them to link their research activities to classroom activities designed to increase student knowledge and awareness of science. Teachers are directed in carrying out unique, individualized research projects resulting in scientific presentation at the SC INBRE Annual Meeting.

Below is a list of RET Summer 2024 research projects opportunities from various institutions across the state.  

This program represents a full time commitment (35 – 40 hours/week) and provides financial support ($3,000 each) to participants as well as a supplies budget (up to $500) to translate summer experiences into deliverables during the participant’s academic year instruction. Any teachers with questions are encouraged to contact Dr. John Kaup. We hope to make connections with teachers and mentors in early April and confirm summer assignments by the end of April.
