STEM teachers, are you interested in obtaining some research experience this summer? The University Transportation Center for Railway Safety is providing K-12 teachers with the opportunity to participate in a research-intensive five week program. Selected applicants for this program will work closely with faculty, students, and staff on current research projects, make short presentations, prepare a formal poster presentation of their research experience at the end of the program, and submit a written, final report describing the results of their research. This experience will also serve as professional development in the field of railway safety, with the ultimate goal of raising awareness about careers in transportation among K-12 students. Teachers participating in this program are expected to bring the knowledge they gained to their classrooms in any form of class activity they deem appropriate and beneficial. Selected teachers will receive $8,000 to cover living expenses. Contact email@example.com for more information and click here to download an application.
