Chemistry for the Next Generation

August 12-16, 2019

This course for high school teachers focuses on three-dimensional (3D) learning through intertwining the disciplinary core ideas of chemistry with the science practices and crosscutting concepts as described in the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This is a repeat of the earlier “Chemistry for the Next Generation” course. Learn More

Saturday Physics Follow-up Workshop: Electricity, Magnetism, and Power Production

April 6, 2019

This workshop engages participants in an NGSS-aligned learning progression culminating in a student-designed 50-Year Energy Plan. We begin with the phenomenon of a speaker, transition to electric guitars, and then scale up to generators. Putting it all together, students consider many real world constraints and complete their 50-Year Energy Plan. Read more here

February 23, 2019

This workshop introduces an NGSS-aligned learning progression through a cell phone and telecommunications project. The unit integrates project based learning, modeling, all four areas of  STEM, and the NGSS Waves performance expectations. We begin with the phenomenon of a cell phone call where the student asks on speakerphone “How are you hearing me?”. Learn more here

Saturday Physics Follow-up Workshop: Electricity, Magnetism, and Power Production

Electricity, Magnetism, and Power Production

This workshop engages participants in an NGSS-aligned learning progression culminating in a student-designed 50-Year Energy Plan. We begin with the phenomenon of a speaker, transition to electric guitars, and then scale up to generators. To explore how generators harness energy in nature, students engage in the practices of engineering as they design wind turbines and optimize solar cells. Creating a rubric to evaluate large scale power production then launches us into climate science. Putting it all together, students consider many real world constraints and complete their 50-Year Energy Plan.

Waves and Technology

This workshop introduces an NGSS-aligned learning progression through a cell phone and telecommunications project. The unit integrates project based learning, modeling, all four areas of  STEM, and the NGSS Waves performance expectations. We begin with the phenomenon of a cell phone call where the student asks on speakerphone “How are you hearing me?”. That launches us into telecommunications, including an exploration of how the ear works and coding a simple “App” to digitize a text message, transmit it, and transform it back to a text message.
