Research Experience for Teachers
The CReSIS Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program was a new undertaking in 2011 that brought pre-service teachers to the Center for two summer months. The goal for this program is to introduce its participants to some of the research activities at CReSIS and help them prepare materials for classroom teaching. This summer, two RET students joined the CReSIS team.
2011 RET Students
Kelsey Leinmiller-Renick is a junior at the University of Kansas majoring in Environmental Studies. She is participating in the UKanTeach Program and is also a member the Marching Jayhawks. Leinmiller-Renick said CReSIS helped her gain more experience with the topics of climate and glacial science, and also taught her how to make complex subject matter more accessible for teachers and students.
Melissa Forester is senior at the University of Kansas majoring in Environmental Studies. She is the mother of one daughter, Leilani, and is also participating in the UKanTeach program. Forester said CReSIS taught her more about cutting-edge climate change research and helped her develop the necessary skills to prepare thorough environmental science lessons and curricula.
