Description:
The CalTeach Summer Research Institute (SRI) is an NSF-Funded eight-week program designed to encourage STEM undergraduates from across the UC system to learn about the implementation of research practices in education. SRI provides a stipend for participants to conduct intensive research on campus or nearby labs while also taking a seminar series that focuses on methods to bring research and data science skills into K-12 classrooms. Apart from the seminar, students participate in weekly research and curriculum development sessions to further strategize the tools needed to improve data literacy in K-12 education.

At the conclusion of the summer term, students are eligible to continue participating in professional development workshops and curriculum implementation in K-12 classrooms with additional funding from SRI. The stipend for a full-time, 8 week, 36 hour a week research placement is $6,300.
