Final Summer of ROKET Research Experience for Teachers Program


The final summer of the CIAN Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program called ROKET (Research in Optics for K-14 Educators and Teachers) has come to a close. The summer was hot in Tucson, AZ but well worth the 6-weeks that CIAN’s final three teachers experienced.

The summer ended with a poster presentation and closing ceremonies celebrating the hard work of the three teachers.
