Many of the nation's premier energy laboratories host the teachers and assign scientists to mentor them. The program targets a diverse group of pre-service teachers preparing to teach K-12 science, mathematics, or technology and provides opportunities for them to do research in a laboratory setting. The program at each participating national laboratory includes a cadre of pre-service teachers who engage in a clearly defined 10-week research project under the mentorship of a laboratory scientist or engineer. All efforts are made to pair each PST intern with a practicing teacher intern in a research team. Teams are supervised by a laboratory program manager and master teacher.|
