RET Curriculum

NEWT offers two programs for K-12 teachers, the NanoEnvironmental Engineering for Teachers (NEET) course and a Research Experience for Teachers (RET).


Nano-Environmental Engineering for Teachers (NEET) is a NEWT course designed to serve AP environmental science teachers. The purpose of the program is to increase the content knowledge of educators and to empower them in implementing rigorous project-based engineering activities on the topic of water sustainability in the classroom.


The RET is a 6-week research internship in NEWT labs at Arizona State University, Rice University, and the University of Texas at El Paso.
