STEMteachersMassBay is offering 2020 Remote Modeling workshops in Chemistry 1, Chemistry 2, and Physics: Mechanics. Participants are asked to be available for synchronous work time from 9am-3pm on each day of the remote workshop.

A message from the workshop leaders:

The virtual format is going to be an experiment for all of us. We know that we cannot replicate the experiences of a face-to-face workshop, and we are working hard to develop a course that allows participants to meaningfully explore the modeling cycle, and to maximize engagement and learning in a remote environment.

In general, participants can expect five total hours of synchronous work time and a 1-hour lunch break Monday-Thursday, and three hours of synchronous work time on Friday mornings. Work time will include limited full-group screen time on Zoom, interspersed with small group work, offline time for running experiments and collecting data, and individual work. There will be "office hours" set aside during some afternoons for those who are working to earn graduate credit.

2020 Modeling Instruction workshops in Biology 1, Biology 2, and Middle School have been canceled. Refunds will be issued in early May. Other regional workshop hosts are offer remote learning alternatives in these subject areas; please visit the AMTA website for details.
