STEM Grant Goes to NY Project To Embed Programming into Physics

STEM STEM Grant Goes to NY Project To Embed Programming into Physics By Dian Schaffhauser 04/14/16 A consortium of organizations has been funded to help 9th grade science teachers integrate computer programming and computational thinking into their physics classes. The two-year project is expected to tap 21 teachers to write curriculum modules that will be tested with about a thousand students each year. STEMteachersNYC, which brings STEM teachers together for professional development, will lead a collaboration that also includes the American Modeling Teachers Association, the American Association of Physics Teachers and Bootstrap, an organization that shows teachers how to use algebra as a means for teaching program design skills than can then be translated into other programming languages. The project will employ a teaching method known as “modeling instruction.” Students…
