STEP UP: Supporting Teachers to Encourage the Pursuit of Undergraduate Physics for Women

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Leadership and Advocacy

Show Details

STEP UP is a national community of physics teachers, researchers, & professional societies. We design research-based materials to empower teachers, change culture, & inspire young women to pursue physics. The poster presents the research behind the design, evidence of impact and propagation model.

TAKEAWAYS:
Learn about research behind the design, and evidence of effectiveness behind classroom interventions that you can use to expand the narrow perceptions of physics and promote supportive classroom cultures to facilitate physics identity development, particularly for women.

SPEAKERS:
Nicole Murawski (Royal Oak High School (retired))

The Relationship between High School STEM Courses and STEM Retention in College

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Research to Practice

Show Details

Using a sample of 755 STEM undergraduates from the National Longitudinal Study of Freshmen, we examined the relationship between students’ years of high school study in STEM courses and their retention in STEM college majors.

TAKEAWAYS:
Our findings suggest that STEM undergraduate students who took more Physics and Chemistry courses in their high school tended to be more likely to stay in STEM majors in their college years compared to their peers who did not or did so less.

SPEAKERS:
Peter Cho (Student), Young Kim (Professor: Azusa, CA)

STEP UP: Shifting the Culture of Who Does Physics

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Equity and Justice

Show Details

STEP UP is a national community that designs physics lessons to empower teachers, create cultural change, and inspire young women to pursue physics in college. Two lessons, Careers in Physics and Women in Physics, are freely available and supported by an online community of educators.

TAKEAWAYS:
STEP UP Careers in Physics and Women in Physics lessons show students how physics helps them reach their future careers goals. This poster will walk you through the lessons that aim to increase representation of women with physics degrees and shift deep-seated cultural views about who does physics.

Using Pavement Design to teach Math and Science

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

In this project, teachers collaborated with Engineering professors in research on climate models and pavement distress. The teachers then translate that experience to inform PBL style class projects, with the goal of increasing student engagement and generating interest in career pathways.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will learn one way teachers may reach beyond traditional classroom walls to inspire students in fields relating to research, engineering, physics, and construction.

SPEAKERS:
Forest Shober (Physics Teacher)
