Rise Jongeling, a K-12 teacher, has visited SD Mines as part of the NSF Research Experience for Teachers (RET) program. This NSF RET program is centered on the theme of Energy and Sustainability and provides opportunities for K-12 educators to conduct scientific and engineering research, engage in professional development, and develop curriculum for subsequent use in their classrooms. Rise visited our campus on August 2021 and spend several days working on the project involving the fabrication of mechanically exfoliated flakes of 2D materials such as graphene, MoS2, and h-BN.
