The Sustainable Futures Institute is again hosting seven middle and high school teachers from Michigan and Wisconsin in a six-week research experience for teachers (RET) program funded by the National Science Foundation. The teachers are conducting state-of-the-art biofuels research projects in engineering and forestry in the labs of Shehkar Joshi (SFRES/Bio Sci), David Shonnard (Chem Engg), and Jeffrey Naber (MEEM).
Based on their research experiences, teachers are developing classroom instruction units and laboratory exercises to introduce engineering and forestry science disciplines and careers to students.
The teachers presented posters on their research and classroom/laboratory unitsat the Great Lakes Research Center, Contact David Shonnard with questions (email@example.com).
This RET project is conducted in association with the Sustainable Futures Institute and the Center for Cognitive and Learning Sciences.
