The Rocky Mountain Summer Research Education Experience is a paid professional development opportunity for highly-committed, ambitious high school teachers looking to expand their skills as a STEM teacher.
The RMSREE is committed to training a diverse group of teachers through substantive research experiences. Diversity is central to CU Denver achieving its mission to be a "diverse teaching and learning community that creates, discovers, and applies knowledge to improve the health and well-being of Colorado and the world."
The RMSREE program features an intensive 10 week research experience in order to:
- allow participants to experience the authentic fulfillment of scientific discovery
- increase their STEM proficiency and confidence
- translate their experience into enhanced STEM education in their own classrooms
- enhance the STEM pipeline for students through a stronger connection between CU Denver and local high schools
The yearly application window opens in December for the following summer.
