Dear K-12 Teacher,
I am contacting you about an NSF Research Program for Teachers (RET).
In late May BU received a commitment from NSF to support a site--very good news, but it also came very late. We are contacting you now hoping that you or a colleague might be interested and able to participate this summer.
The site would support 4 teams of teachers -- comprised of a novice STEM or pre-service teacher teamed with a veteran teacher. The program will take place June 28 through August 6th M-F from 9-5.
There is a all a pre-service workshop June 23-24 and 3 callback sessions during the academic year. Participating teachers will receive $1000/wk. for each week in the lab and $200/day for the pre-workshop and callback sessions.
If you are interested, please visit the website:
http://www.bu.edu/lernet/ret to apply and for more information. The attached pdf flyer spells out the RET requirements and benefits.
Please let me know if you have any additional questions after you look over the material. We're very excited to offer this summer professional opportunity and hope you can join us.
