2012 ANNUAL RE-SEED CONFERENCE


The RE-SEED Program

Retirees Enhancing Science Education through Experiments and Demonstrations

Since 1991 the RE-SEED program at Northeastern University has trained over 700 retired scientists and engineers in fourteen states to assist K-12 science teachers in the classroom. Today there are over eighty volunteers assisting science teachers in the greater Boston area. After taking part in a comprehensive training program, participants are asked to assist in science classrooms one day a week for one school year. There is no obligation to continue and volunteers may select their assignment. Most volunteers serve over three years (the retention rate is seventy percent) and are very satisfied with the experience. 

The RE-SEED Program is part of the Center for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) Education at Northeastern University. Other programs of the STEM Center focus on science teacher training and student programs in science learning.

This website provides information specifically related to the Boston RE-SEED Center and, while the website for the National RE-SEED Program is being redesigned, information about the National RE-SEED Program is also included.
