Applicants will be selected by November 16, 2019. Space is very limited, therefore, completing the application process does NOT guarantee placement in the program.NEET is designed for current AP Environmental Science teachers, Environmental Systems teachers, and Biology/Life Sciences teachers from the Greater Houston, TX & Greater Phoenix, AZ areas. Teachers from these areas who do not teach one of these subjects are welcome to apply, but will not receive priority consideration.

All NEWT students must turn in this form each year to participate. Contact Liz.Scroggins@rice.edu if you need a form (requires faculty advisor's signature also). Click on the title for the link to upload your form.

NEWT is an interdisciplinary, multi-institution nanosystems-engineering research center (headquartered at Rice University) whose goal is to facilitate access to clean water almost anywhere in the world by developing efficient modular water treatment systems that are easy to deploy, and that can tap unconventional sources to provide humanitarian water or emergency response. NEWT also develops systems to treat and reuse challenging industrial wastewaters in remote locations, such as oil and gas fields to help energy production be more sustainable and more cost-efficient in regards to its water footprint.
