Summary: A record number of teachers gathered at the UCSB Materials Research Laboratory on March 16, 2007 for our
eighth annual science curriculum workshop. Sixty secondary science and math teachers from Santa Barbara,
Ventura and Los Angeles Counties spent the day at the MRL participating in curriculum demonstrations led by last
summer's Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) participants. Teresa Spiteri (Biology, Dos Pueblos High School,
Goleta), Leila Jirari (Biology, San Marcos High School, Santa Barbara) and Steven Ryan (Earth Science, Pioneer
High School, Lompoc) each presented curriculum projects developed from their two-year RET experiences.
Commented one participant after observing Ms. Spiteri's unit on Personal Health, "It was awesome. I can take the
information and put it to use tomorrow." In addition to teacher presentations, participants toured UCSB's new
Allosphere, a three-story immersive visualization space just opened in the California NanoSystems Institute, and
attended a keynote address by Dr. Kai Ewert entitled "Designing Lipid DNA Complexes for Gene Therapy." The
UCSB MRSEC has sponsored 50 RET teachers since 1999. RET curriculum projects are downloadable at
http://www.mrl.ucsb.edu/RET.
The recent MRSEC Teacher Workshop
at UCSB was a Great Success. Junior
