Research Experience for Teachers

Program Details

The Clean Energy Research Experience for Teachers program is for local community college teachers who have the goal of integrating clean energy research into their curriculum. Instructors are immersed in a research lab where they concentrate on learning a technique. Participants translate the research into a lab that can be used in a two-year college with minimal equipment capability.

This program provides a stipend of $6,000.

RET Stories

Instructors Jim Patterson and Tony Molinero brought clean energy science back to their classrooms at North Seattle College and Grays Harbor College. Read our story about their RET experiences!

After founding the first engineering program at Northwest Indian College, Stephanie Bostwick participated in our 2020 RET program, during which she developed a clean energy curriculum and began exploring the feasibility of microgrids on campus and for the Lummi Nation as a whole.
