CTI Science Research Reception: Thursday, Sept. 7

SRET Showcase & Reception: Thursday, Sept. 7, 5:00-5:50 p.m.                  Halton Reading Room in Atkins Library, UNC Charlotte

CTI will host the Science Research Experience for Teachers (SRET) Showcase and Reception on Thursday, Sept. 7, 5:00-5:50 p.m. at the Halton Reading Room at UNC Charlotte’s Atkins Library. This event is free and open to the public. Guests are invited to learn about Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools teachers’ work with professors in research laboratories at UNC Charlotte and Davidson College this summer.

Fourteen CMS teachers collaborated with professors and graduate assistants, as part of CTI’s 2017 SRET during June and July. These CTI Fellows worked in four different laboratories led by university and college professors: Dr. Susan Trammell, physics and optical science, UNCC; Marcus Jones, chemistry, UNCC; Dr. Tom Schmedake, chemistry, UNCC; and Dr. Erland Stevens, chemistry, Davidson College.

During the Sept. 7 reception, the SRET teacher fellows, professors and graduate assistants will provide poster presentations and discuss their unique collaborations and how this research experience translates to their classrooms and their students. Pizza and soft drinks will be served. Parking details here.
