Past Programs

  • RET in Biophotonics: NSF-Sponosored RET (Research Experience for Teachers) program places K-14 teachers in biophotonics labs at BU where they conduct research for six weeks during the summer. Program includes research seminars, pedagogy sessions, and poster presentations. Teachers are expected to create lesson plans that integrate their research into the classroom. Teachers also attend three academic year callback sessions.
  • Mathematics Field Days: Two day-long programs with lectures and large-screen computer projections of chaos and fractals; breakout sessions on various mathematical topics. For high school math students and their teachers.
  • Pathways Program: For ten years, LERNet hosted two daylong programs designed for young women in high school who are interested in science, mathematics and engineering. The format was designed to encourage interaction between the students and female scientists, and to familiarize them with the variety of careers in these fields.
