Special Explorations for Teachers and Students (SETS)
Thank you for your interest in our SETS program! Although we have reduced staff, we are able to offer SETS opportunities to all Florida teachers on a semi-limited basis. Please fill out the request form as soon as possible so that we can work with you to set a date for your SETS activity.
The SETS program provides an opportunity for teachers to bring their students on campus for a custom designed science experience. Based on the goals and objectives of each teacher, CPET works with UF faculty, staff, and students to create an exciting educational exploration of current research concepts, applications and careers in the fields of science.
The University of Florida is located in Gainesville, Florida in North Central Florida. Situated on 2,000 acres and home to over 49,000 of the brightest minds, the University embraces tradition while fostering continued growth and discovery. The University campus is quite expansive and students and teachers are encouraged to explore the many offerings.
Advanced biotechnology and DNA Science Explorations take place in a teaching laboratory at the UF Cancer/Genetics Research Complex. As a part of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research, the teaching laboratory offers students the chance to use authentic research equipment in a true academic laboratory.
