STEM Expo + Annual Meeting 2018

Please join us for an engaging series of presentations, demos and speakers exploring the future of STEM Education!

Introduction to Modeling Instruction 2018

During this one-week introduction to the principles of Modeling Instruction we’ll introduce several aspects of modeling such as facilitating student discourse, the modeling cycle, multiple representations in problem solving, and model-based curriculum design.

Physics/Mechanics Modeling

The workshop will develop and focus on fundamental physics models such as constant velocity; uniform acceleration; free particle (balanced force); constant, unbalanced (net) force and more, while utilizing a process-oriented inquiry approach.

Designing for Discourse and Sensemaking in Physics Class

A workshop exploring discourse and sense-making in physics classroom.

Computational Modeling in Physics Intensive with Bootstrap/Pyret

This workshop will explore how teachers can use coding in the physics classroom to creatively involve students in solving complex problems using the computer.

Waves and Sound Modeling

This workshop will focus on all of the topics that are relevant and accessible as part of a typical algebra-based, high school physics course.
