Research Experience for Teachers (RET) sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF)
The Research Experience for Teachers (RET) grant is awarded to Pre-service or in service teachers by the National Science Foundation. The purpose of this grant is to get teachers into the science laboratory so that they may see how “real science” is done. The hope is that the experiences these teachers have will generate excitement that can be conveyed into the science classroom.
