Teacher Programs

NSF RET Site in GIS at UCF will take place this summer virtually through Citizen Science GIS at University of Central Florida. We are pleased to host the fifth year of our National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates & Teachers (REU/RET) Site “Preparing the Next Generation of Scholars through Community GIS and Citizen Science.” Our virtual program (due to COVID) offers fully funded summer research experiences for eight undergraduate students and two K-12 teachers. Participants will also be invited to a fully funded ten-day fieldwork experience to Belize in early 2022 as COVID conditions improve. For more information, visit: https://www.citizensciencegis.org/nsf-reuret-site
