It has been another exciting week for this SPS intern. On Monday, Rebecca and I went to UMD at Shady Grove to share some of our lesson plans with in-service STEM teachers that are in a Masters course on STEM education.
This week has been quite as packed as the last. On Tuesday, I went to a 100K in 10 Solutions Lab where we discussed how to incorporate the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) into a successful curriculum for STEM teachers.
The second week of working with AAPT has been exciting, and very full. I spent a few days working on an upcoming project aimed at teaching physics to young students through computer science and programming, which is something I have always been interested in.
New York State Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (NYSS-AAPT) Meeting will feature SPS posters and talk abstracts, our version of Teslamania, where you present a cool physics demo, and a PTRA workshop chosen from one or more of the extremely interesting Perimeter Institute suite of workshops.
