A program for Research Experience for Teachers from schools in the Delaware Valley was started in 1999. Teachers spend 6 weeks working on an individual research project under the supervision of a graduate student or post-doctoral fellow in the laboratory of an LRSM -associated faculty member. At the end of the program the teacher must make an oral presentation of his/her findings and also submit a research paper before leaving the program. We will provide a stipend of $5,000 of which $4,500 will be paid this summer and a further $500 when you return next year to meet our incoming class of RET teachers to give us a report on how you used the experience in your class/school during the year.
