Event Details

 Join our Massachusetts Middle School and High School Science, Technology, Engineering and Math teachers participating in a Face to Face offering starting July 13, 14, & 15. Project GUTS' a workshop for Massachusetts teachers is geared towards teachers that want to use computer modeling and simulation in their Science classroom. This class will feature learning the tool (StarLogo Nova), learning computer science concepts through computer modeling as well as best practices as teachers for teaching these concepts to students.

Thirty-six  hours of PDP points will be awarded to teachers who complete the entire course, 3 Face to Face days, 10 hours on-line and 2 half day follow-up sessions. CSTA Greater Boston with funding from ECEP and MassCAN is funding this summer institute.

In addition, local facilitators are providing local support and managing an online professional community for Massachusetts's teachers to offer support as you learn and teach using Project GUTS materials.

What is Project GUTS?

Project GUTS: “Growing Up Thinking Scientifically”, offers science, technology, math and engineering (STEM) curricular modules used in school and in after school clubs for primarily middle school students and teacher professional development programs. Project GUTS was designed for students from all different backgrounds to engage in scientific inquiry by investigating topics of interest using computer modeling and simulation

Access to the Internet using a Windows OS, Mac OS X or Chromebook is required. The simulations and models are not currently supported using an iPAD.

Following the Face to Face offering, CSTA Greater Boston will host 2 half day "meetups" for educators to review curriculum, answer questions, and share experiences.

We are working in partnership with Irene Lee, Project GUTS' principal investigator and curriculum creator from Santa Fe Institute to prepare STEM teachers to use this outstanding curriculum with our Massachusetts students.
