Computational Modeling in Physics First with Bootstrap
Summer 2019 Workshop: TBD
Summer 2018 Workshop: July 9-20, Chicago, IL
Applications are closed for consideration for the Summer 2018 workshop -- interested candidates are still able to complete the application form, and will be considered on a waiting list for the 2019 workshop. Read about this project in the project overview, or click the links below:
Computational thinking is widely recognized as an essential skill for the future workforce and success in STEM. This grant engages teachers in professional development to plan and implement classroom instruction in algebra-based Physics First courses that integrates computational modeling (one aspect of computational thinking) through two existing, widely used approaches - Modeling Instruction for physics and Bootstrap for computational modeling.
This program is especially focused on combating many equity concerns associated with student access to physics sand computer science. Working with Physics First teachers will allow this project to impact student populations which will be demographically more diverse than students historically enrolled in standalone computer science courses or upper-grade physics courses.
