This program is designed to enhance the professional development of 6-8th grade teachers in DOE middle schools by providing teachers with the tools and support to further strengthen their science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) expertise.
This partnership is driven by the needs and requirements of individual teachers, and by technological advancements in engineering, specifically in advanced wireless communications. RET Hawaii offers a unique opportunity for the teacher to initiate programs, technology applications and lab curricula, utilizing wireless technology.
The RET Hawaii program was initiated in 2004 by Dr. Magdy Iskander, Director of the Hawaii Center for Advanced Communications at the University of Hawaii. From on Oahu middle school, this program has expanded each year and now includes twenty five schools on four islands. Through ACT 111, a partnership with NSF and additional industry support, RET plans to continue the roll out of this program to even more Hawaii middle schools and continue to provide infrastructure and support to the teachers of Hawaii.
