Pre-College Programs

 Applications are now closed for summer 2018. We will not be running these two programs again in the future.

CBiRC had tremendous impact on teacher professional development and K12 education over the last 10 years. With our graduation from NSF ERC funding, we are no longer administering our own RET program and are pleased that Iowa State University has opted to capitalize and expand on its success by developing an institution-wide RET program.  This program will be administered/coordinated by the Office of Biotechnology at ISU.  K-12 teachers interested in participating should contact BIOTC and visit for more information.

We are grateful for the support that NSF provided us, for the fantastic faculty who hosted teachers in these programs during our ERC-funded life, and for the wonderful teachers who participated in our programs, enriching themselves and our campus over the years.
