Description:
A joint effort by Rice University, Arizona State University (ASU), The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and Yale University, the Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT) is the first national center to develop next-generation water treatment systems enabled by nanotechnology. The aim is to enable access to suitable water almost anywhere in the world by developing high performance, easy-to-deploy systems for drinking water and industrial wastewater treatment systems enabled by nanotechnology.

In collaboration with NEWT, the Rice Office of STEM Engagement offers NEWT RET, a year-long internship with a focus on nanotechnology-enabled water treatment to reinforce the understanding and appreciation of science as a process. Participants observe and actively work in research while developing inquiry-based lesson plans that apply NEWT research, using media and other strategies to bring the laboratory experience to students. Teachers of all subjects and grade levels from the greater Houston, TX; El Paso, TX; or Tempe/Phoenix, AZ areas are welcome to apply, but preference will be given to STEM teachers.

Participants are matched to a graduate student or postdoctoral researcher mentor who can help guide their research.
