In this talk, I report on how one long-term learning experience called Science STARS is both designed for and lived in ways that synergistically merge three diverse learning communities (urban teen girls, pre-service science teachers and social justice researchers), positioning each as resources for the others’ productive identity wanderings and development.
This presentation will focus on how and why an understanding of basic chemistry concepts is important for everyone, and how we might change our approach to chemistry education to achieve a deeper understanding.

Objects can interact with each other over distances if at least one is “charged.” This event will focus on how charged object interact with each other and how neutral object interact with charged objects. We will use various materials to experience static electricity and will have a chance to find the patterns in observations. We will also share how these phenomena can be related to our everyday life.
In this talk, Deborah will report on the development of a life science curriculum, targeted for undergraduate students, which was modeled after a commercially available physics curriculum and based on aspects of how people learn. She will describe the collaborative development process and explore modifications necessary to use a physics pedagogical model in a life science context.
