Call-for-applications for the NASA South Dakota Space Grant-supported summer 2019 “Research Experience for Teachers” (RET).  Feel free to post it on your SDSTA/SDCTM websites and forward to any full-time high school teachers of STEM-related subjects in South Dakota that may be interested.  The program provides $8,000 fellowship awards to two high school STEM teachers to participate in an 8-week research experience over summer 2019 under the mentorship of a university faculty or other professional researcher that works at an affiliate institution of the SD Space Grant Consortium.  It is a great opportunity and has been well-received by the teachers who won these $8,000 awards during the last two summers.
