According to an article in The Sacramento Bee, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) includes $33 million in stimulus monies to develop paid research positions in the sciences. For the next two summers, these positions will be available for university students and science teachers. The Sacramento Bee states, “the goal is to fuel the economy with new jobs while supporting innovations in alternative energy and new medical cures.”
Science teachers from all grades, from high school all the way down to elementary school, are taking advantage of this summer research opportunity.
