Technology

Design, Engineering and Maker Cultures Interested in learning more about the engineering and design process, and how to incorporate it into your classroom? This workshop is designed to show how you can infuse engineering and design thinking into your curriculum. Drawing from the NGSS Engineering Design standards we'll explore how students can use design and affordable makerspace technologies to ask
Introduction to BioTechnology In this workshop explore how biotechnology can be integrated into your living environment or life sciences curriculum. In this workshop explore how biotechnology can be integrated into your living environment or life sciences curriculum. As the application of technology to benefit human life, Biotechnology can include the use of living systems for research and development
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
