STEM integration in the classroom can be challenging but provides rich experiences for students Bring your laptop as we show you how we used Tinkercad (coding), and 3D printers (technology) to support content (Malus's Law).

Example of how to integrate science, technology, and engineering into a lesson that is normally taught mathematically.

Promoting Scientific Literacy and Data Fluency with Interactive Simulations (PhET/CODAP)

Saturday, March 25 • 1:20 PM - 2:20 PM

Omni Atlanta Hotel at CNN Center - Cottonwood A

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

One of the core practices of science is the use of measurements with corresponding uncertainties to make claims about an experiment. Join PhET and Concord Consortium as they showcase their work creating the next generation of interactive simulations with a focus on data fluency and measurement.

Attendees will get a full demonstration of the upcoming open-source simulations from PhET and CODAP, including all links and digital materials. Presenters will also discuss several ideas for mini-activities to teach students about experimental uncertainty and measurement.

NSF’s NOIRLab’s Teen Astronomy Café – To Go! program brings the excitement of scientific discovery to students by providing them with an opportunity to explore real astronomical data using Python Notebooks. Join us as we unpack all educator resources and try to break the solar system!

Participants will explore the Teen Astronomy Café – To Go! activities complimentary of the US-ELTP science themes and designed to support the NGSS. They will gain confidence to help students understand and simulate astronomical phenomena as they develop critical thinking and data literacy skills.
