NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
We will offer an online Chemistry II Course (see details below).
We plan to offer the modeling workshops in the summer of 2021. We hope to see you then.
MODELING WORKSHOPS 2020 CANCELED: July 6 - July 17, 2020
Cal Poly University’s Center for Engineering, Science, and Mathematics Education (CESAME) and the NOYCE Western Regional are pleased to offer three concurrent 2-week professional development courses this summer in:
- Physics Modeling II - Waves
- Chemistry Modeling II
- Biology Modeling I
These workshops are structured inquiry approaches to high school chemistry, physics and physical science teaching that incorporate computer technology and insights from current content & education research. Teachers will develop skills in fostering scientific discourse and presentation and in assessment of student learning. By designing and carrying out a series of investigations that use the Modeling Method teachers will practice Socratic questioning techniques that will enable them to teach physics and/or chemistry using the Modeling Method.
Please view the Summer Modeling 2020 details below
Facilitator:Jon Anderson, Centennial HS, Minneapolis, MN; Physics Education Consultant, AMTA certified Physics Modeling instructor.
Facilitator:Brenda Royce, University HS, Fresno, CA; AMTA certified Modeling Chemistry instructor.
Biology I is open to High School and secondary chemistry teachers or other science teachers interested in Modeling.

This Modeling series is funded by two grants:
•CESAME Cotchett Educational Grant
•Western Regional Noyce Initiative (WRNI)
CESAME and WRNI are providing funding that allows us to waive the registration cost and provide a stipend for local teachers and selected Noyce scholars and alumni.In addition, WRNI has provided funding to support traveling for a limited number of Noyce participants. Noyce scholars will be notified if they are selected, and will be given instructions regarding the funds available to assist them with their travel.
$250 stipend will be included for:
•Selected Noyce Scholars/Alumni (can also qualify for travel expenses)
$500 stipend will be included for Local Teachers
