Video Analysis in the Physics and Chemistry Classroom: Pivot Interactives and the NGSS

Learn how to use Pivot Interactives in the physics and chemistry classroom with developer Peter Bohacek and educator Craig Buszka.

Investigating Mechanics with Mobile Devices

In this hands-on workshop, we’ll model mechanics concepts such as kinematics, free fall, projectile motion, rotation and oscillations through the use of various small, mobile bluetooth sensors as well as through the application of various Apps.

Graphical Applications in Math and Physics: Using Desmos and Simulations

In this workshop, we’ll learn about many of the functions of Desmos, a free online graphing calculator, with a focus on how to use Desmos to make meaning of mathematics.

Energy, Bonds, and Avoiding Misconceptions in the STEM Classroom

Continuing our popular energy-themed workshops, this workshop explores an energy analysis of mechanical, electrical, and chemical bonds to discover where energy is really stored.

Graph it Out! Make Sense of Data in Math and Science

In this workshop, we will examine an approach to data collection and analysis that students can return to again and again as a process for finding and representing mathematical patterns.

Got Energy? – Telling the Energy Story in Biology

A continuation of our engaging discussion on energy and bonds, this workshop will look specifically into where energy is stored and transferred (how energy is “used”) within the context of biological systems.
