Interested in Field Testing our New Modeling Curriculum?

Please join us as at NSTA in Chicago on March 13th, 2015!   Two of our team members will be presenting a draft version of our latest modeling curriculum.  We will walk teachers through this cross-disciplinary curriculum  that teaches students how dynamic systems models are developed, evaluated, and applied to understand complex scientific issues such as cancer and the environment. Since 2003, we have been using NSF funds to translate our STEM,…
