Physics without Fear
Does teaching physical science make you uncomfortable? For many K-8 teachers and students, physical science content can sometimes feel intimidating. In this hands-on workshop, we will share some simple, research-based instructional strategies for helping students (and teachers) in grades K-8 build a solid conceptual understanding of motion and forces.

Learning Density through Proportional Reasoning
Learn an alternative to rote density calculation. Through first-hand experimentation and examination of mass vs. volume graphs, students develop the density concept and reason through typical density problems without manipulating the equation density = mass/volume.

Following the Bouncing Ball
Investigate "happy and sad" balls that lead to investigations into force, motion, and energy as well as the engineering design of a new ball by elementary students. Experience how bouncing balls can lead to a process of engagement, formative assessment through questioning, science inquiry, and finally design products for all students.

Magnetic Moments for Learning
Magnets are much more fun than things to hang on a refrigerator. At their best, they provide the strongest relevant and hands-on ways to explore and build a foundation for understanding the invisible fundamental forces of nature. Explore ways elementary students can measure and test magnetic forces as you also engage in designing ways to test and build with magnets. These investigations are major "attractions" for your students as they build their understanding using their own experiences and data.
