Session Description:

The two oral sessions and one poster session focused on informing scientists, educators, education researchers, evaluators and funding agency program officers on efforts to provide K-12 teachers with authentic research experiences in science and engineering. Presentations highlighted best practices for the “Teacher Research Experience” model. Presentations by those who design, facilitate, evaluate, and fund TRE programs were especially encouraged, as well as presentations by teachers and scientists who have participated in such programs.

Suggested areas for presenters to address included but were not limited to:

Presentations on new models for long and short-term teacher research experiences were invited from the fields of space science, environmental science, atmospheric science, earth science, oceanography, etc. Scientist-teacher research teams were particularly encouraged to submit abstracts for the session. Printed and CD-based materials were brought by participants to the session to be distributed to attendees.
