The Research Experiences for Teachers Program (RET) is a comprehensive six-week summer research program at Northeastern University that offers teachers a wonderful opportunity to participate in active research projects in professional laboratory settings. Teachers are encouraged to make real connections between the research experience and their classroom curricula as well as create research-based curriculum units that are aligned with local, state, and national frameworks, as well as their own research experience. Participants will also have the opportunity to take part in weekly research seminars, special training sessions, professional development meetings, field trips, and network with other district teachers and university faculty.
