Research Education and Activities for Community Teachers

The 2022 REACT workshop took place on July 14 (virtual) and July 15 (in person).

The REACT (Research and Education Activities for Community Teachers) program connects K-12 educators to current research at Cornell University. Led by graduate students, this two-day workshop includes presentations on research and the path to higher education, lab tours, and demonstrations. The goal of REACT is to show teachers how cutting-edge research is performed today, equip them with activities that can help them bring that research back to the community and their students, and foster relationships between educators and graduate students. REACT was started at University of Michigan in 2017, and has grown tremendously since. Our team visited the University of Michigan workshop in 2019 and started a Cornell branch of the program in 2020 to bring REACT to educators in New York.
