Energy Across the Content
What is Energy? In all of our science classes; Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Earth Science, etc. we all teach about energy. However, if we're honest with ourselves we don't really have a good, working definition of energy. More importantly we don't have a shared concept of energy. How are we supposed to help the students develop a coherent energy concept if we don't even have one among science teachers? Join us for a session where we will explore the ways in which energy is treated in the different disciplines and see if we can't get a start on a group understanding of energy.

Charts & Diagrams & Graphs, Oh My!
Science Practices 1 and 5 in the revised AP Chemistry Curriculum focus on various representations for interpreting data and communicating knowledge of relevant chemical concepts. This session will review representations students are expected to interpret when they take the exam, including sample assessment items. Student handouts and other review strategies for the exam will be provided.

Global Health Got Protein
Incorporate NGSS science and engineering practices in your biology class by engaging students to define the problem of world hunger. Considering constraints, students will design a treatment plan (solution) for protein-energy malnutrition and test it via the Bradford Assay, in the form of an evidence-based argument.

5 Days that Changed my Life: Coding in the Science Classroom
Have you ever wondered how you could bring some coding into the classroom? It seems daunting however last summer I was part of a group who learned how to do just that. Come see what we learned, learn some coding and see what the students experience. Also learn how you can sign up for next summer's coding workshop.
