Chemistry Professors Scott Reed and Doris Kimbrough are excited to announce that the National Institute of Health has funded the Rocky Mountain Summer Research Education Experience (RMSREE), to begin summer 2021 on the University of Colorado Denver campus. All high school STEM teachers from the Front Range are eligible to apply for this paid professional development opportunity. The program includes a summer research experience in bioengineering, bioimaging, or health informatics mentored by CU Denver faculty. Over the course of the teacher’s program, fellows will work with members of their teacher cohort, faculty mentors, and program personnel to translate their summer research experiences into increased STEM content for their classroom. Interactive weekly seminars and forums throughout the summer experience will give teachers more confidence in research design and methods, scientific communication, and STEM lesson planning. In an effort to recruit a diverse and talented group of fellows for the first year of the program in summer 2021, if you have contacts at high schools along the Front Range, Reed and Kimbrough would appreciate it if you reached out and shared this opportunity with them. More information and the on-line application are available at this website. Questions about the program can be directed to Professors Reed, Kimbrough or to RMSREE@ucdenver.edu
