Cal Poly Modeling Series
July 8 - July 19, 2019
Cal Poly University’s Center for Engineering, Science, and Mathematics Education (CESAME) and the NOYCE Western Regional are pleased to offer two concurrent (possibility of three) 2-week professional development courses this summer in:
- Physics Modeling I
- Chemistry Modeling I
- Biology Modeling- TENTATIVE
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.
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 (tentative) 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)
