Research Experiences for Teachers
Coming Summer 2023 (Date To Be Announced):
The Louisiana Materials Design Alliance (LAMDA) RET program is a four day teaching workshop to expose science educators to materials and manufacturing research. The workshop is hosted in the summer at one of the five LAMDA universities (LSU, LaTech, ULL, SUBR, or Tulane). The topic is to be announced, and will either be cybersecurity or 3D printing.
Each teacher will receive an $800 stipend.
- U.S. citizen/permanent resident.
- Faculty at a two-year college or high school.
- Desire to incorporate workshop information into future course work at home campus.
- Applications from women and groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM disciplines are encouraged.

2022 RET Wrap-Up
The 2022 LAMDA Virtual RET was an online four-day training workshop that focused on both 3D modeling and 3D printing. Participants learned how to create 3D models of engineering parts using Solid Edge and print those 3D models using two 3D printing techniques, namely, fused deposition modeling (FDM) and digital light processing (DLP). The workshop also included basic demonstrations of both FDM & DLP and their workflow.
