Materials Research Science & Engineering Centers (MRSEC): Research Experience For Teachers (RET)
Research Experience for Teachers (RET) is a summer program that provides K-12 teachers and pre-service teachers with an outstanding environment for continued professional development. The goals of RET are to give teachers an opportunity to experience: the scientific method in forefront areas of materials research, a hands-on research experience in laboratories and specialized, advanced MRSEC facilities, the use of materials research instrumentation, and the opportunity and techniques to develop K-12 science lessons based on materials research.

MRSEC: Elementary through high school (K-12) students
MRSEC's offer a variety of activities designed to make science accessible to students. Faculty, post doctorate associates, graduate students, and staff offer hands-on lessons, demonstrations, support for science fairs, mobile laboratories, and mentorship programs.

MRSEC: Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) offers undergraduates opportunities to participate in materials research projects for ten weeks during the summer. Students receive a specific research project assignment, and then work closely with faculty, post doctorates, and graduate students. Seminars, lunches, and events are coordinated for undergraduates to work and socialize.

Nano*High
A series of free Saturday morning lectures and laboratory tours sponsored by UC's Berkeley Lab, for High School students of all interests and teachers of all subjects-no science background needed.
