Introduction to Active Learning in STEM During this one-week introduction to the principles of active learning in STEM, we’ll introduce several strategies such as facilitating student discourse, modeling, multiple representations in problem solving, and curriculum design. We will explore these ideas by investigating content from several cross-cutting-concepts within the physical and life science contexts at middle and high school levels. You'll
NGSS and Phenomena-Based Learning Experience learning from a phenomenal perspective! In this workshop, participants will learn how to use phenomena to engage students in Next Generation Science Standards, which integrate science practices, crosscutting concepts, and disciplinary core ideas. Phenomena are observable events that occur in the world and something educators can use to inspire discussion and understanding of key
Data Analysis and Linearization in Physics Learn how to use data collection and linearization methods to guide students to physics principles and equations. Participants will have a chance to design experiments, take measurements and analyze data like physicists. Experiments cover many AP Physics-1 and AP Physics-2 lab design problems. Topics include mechanics, mechanical waves, fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and electromagnetism. July 24-26,
Computational Thinking & Coding in Physics Computational thinking is the use of computers to simulate and study complex systems. It is widely recognized as an essential skill for the future workforce and success in STEM and is also a perfect tool for the physics classroom. The use of simple programs and simulations with modifiable code allows students to visually and graphically
Exploring Physics: Strategies for Teaching Mechanics In this workshop you will learn how to engage your students actively in learning Physics, specifically, the physics of motion, forces (Newton’s Laws), and energy.
