SE3D ANNOUNCES RESEARCH EXPERIENCE FOR TEACHERS (RET) OPPORTUNITY
Santa Clara, CA, June 20, 2018 – SE3D, a company leading innovation in bioprinting education and technology, announced today that two highly qualified teachers have been selected for the NSF (National Science Foundation) RET fellowship.
Jesse Wade Robinson has been teaching Biology at High Tech High, a low income charter high school in San Diego, for the past 14 years. She will be collaborating with SE3D to elevate the existing science curriculum at High Tech High with bioprinting. As a RET fellow, she plans to pursue a research project in tissue engineering. Her goal is design a curriculum in which students engineer solutions to solve biological problems by bioprinting gel matrices with stem cells. This pilot program will begin in Spring of 2019 with 45 High Tech High students.
Sarah Hart has been teaching Biotechnology and AP Biology at Windsor High School for the past 22 years. She developed a STEM magnet program and coordinated partnerships and independent projects for students with relevant industries. This year, she was awarded a grant to create an interactive exhibit to teach individuals about the link between diabetes and kidney disease and how to diagnose kidney disease. Sarah also plans on using the fellowship opportunity to explore tissue engineering and build on Windsor’s educational exhibit on diabetes and kidney health. She hopes that exposing young people to the anatomy and physiology of their organs will promote better health practices and awareness.
Both teachers were selected due to their passionate interest in bioprinting and how they plan on applying this technology to the classroom. SE3D is excited to collaborate with them through this research experience at the cutting edge of science.
