K-12 and Community College Teaching Modules by RET Participants

The nano@illinois Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign ran annually from 2014-2017, and brought in a diverse set of in-service and pre-service science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers and community college faculty from across the nation to do cutting-edge research in nanotechnology.

Each teacher developed a multi-day instructional module with associated instructional resources that is grounded in the research that was conducted throughout their time in the program. In addition to teaching this module to students and collecting data on its integration in your classroom, this module can be shared nationwide through nanotechnology hubs.
