Description:
A joint effort by Rice University, Arizona State University (ASU), the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP), and Yale University, the Nanosystems Engineering Research Center for Nanotechnology-Enabled Water Treatment (NEWT) is the first national center to develop next-generation water treatment systems enabled by nanotechnology. The aim is to enable access to suitable water almost anywhere in the world by developing high performance, easy-to-deploy systems for drinking water and industrial wastewater treatment systems enabled by nanotechnology.

In collaboration with NEWT, the Rice Office of STEM Engagement offers NEWT RET, a year-long internship with a focus on nanotechnology-enabled water treatment to reinforce the understanding and appreciation of science as a process. Participants observe and actively work in research while developing inquiry-based lesson plans that apply NEWT research, using media and other strategies to bring the laboratory experience to students.
