The Michigan Mathematics and Science Leadership Network is excited to invite you to an all expenses paid, two-day workshop, during which we will take a deep dive into using SageModeler, the tool used for CREATE's secondary science units.
SageModeler is a free web-based systems modeling tool for secondary school students to construct dynamic models and validate their models by comparing outputs from their own models and data from one or more other sources, including experimental data from probes or data generated by simulations. We’re engaging learners in three-dimensional learning by using crosscutting concepts (systems and systems modeling, cause and effect, and energy and matter) with various scientific practices (particularly modeling, but also analyzing and interpreting data and engaging in argument with evidence), integrated with disciplinary core ideas.
Join us on Wednesday, May 1st, and Tuesday, May 2nd (9am-4pm each day) for a workshop led by CREATE director Joe Krajcik, and Dan Damelin from Concord Consortium, as they guide us in learning SageModeler in depth! There will also be follow up support to the two-day workshop for attendees.
Grant funding is available to participants - lodging and travel expenses will be reimbursed, along with the $45 fee, which is required at time of registration.
