DOE Pre-Service Teacher (PST) Internships
The goal of the PST Internships project is to enhance the nation’s source of proficient teachers of K-12 science, mathematics, and technology. The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) provides 10-week summer research appointments for pre-service teachers who plan mathematics, science, or technology in K-12 schools.
During the summer the pre-service teachers are immersed in engaging, clearly defined research experiences at DOE National Laboratories. The pre-service teachers are mentored by a "master" teacher and mentor scientists at PNNL to maximize the building of content knowledge and skills. The students spend 80% of their time on research and 20% of their time engaged in workshops with the master teacher, attending seminars, and preparing their deliverables. The master teacher assists the pre-service teachers in translating their research experiences into inquiry-based K-12 educational modules that are aligned with national science standards.
