The Center for Integrating Research & Learning is committed to training the next generation of scientists, offering one-of-a-kind research opportunities for students and teachers.
Funded by the National Science Foundation, RET is a six-week summer residential program for U.S. citizens gives K-12 teachers from across the country the chance to participate in real-world science and cutting-edge magnetic field research. Through weekly seminars, discussion groups, professional development and technology workshops, teachers develop strategies and resources to translate the experience into material for their classrooms.
REU is an eight-week summer internship program matches undergraduate students with scientists at the Magnet Lab's three sites, offering them unique opportunities to explore science at the extremes of magnetic fields, pressure and temperature while working alongside some of the finest scientists, magnet designers and engineers in the world.
Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who want research experience at the cutting edge of magnetic field, pressure and temperature need look no further than the Magnet Lab. Research at the lab covers many disciplines — physics, biology, chemistry, engineering — and all the combinations of each you can imagine.
In 2011, for a second consecutive year, 10 Iraqi Fulbright scholars spent their summer at Florida State University. They came to learn new research methods, use cutting-edge tools and equipment, hone their teaching and administrative skills and develop lasting collegial relationships. One of the scholars, physicist Wasan Saleh, spent most of her time at the Magnet Lab.
