Come join DFW-area STEM teachers Daniel Brown, physics teacher at the Parish Episcopal School in Dallas, and former AP Physics lead for DISD, and Daniel Garrison, co-founder of STEMteachersDFW, engineering teacher at the Woodrow Wilson HS Academy of Engineering to participate in a lab-driven, inquiry-based, classroom-tested, and research-rooted Modeling Instruction cycle centered around energy transfer models.  You will experience this session in both student- and teacher-mode, and a lab using simple toy poppers that has dimensions for every STEM discipline, context, whether you teach with a high-tech or low-tech equipped lab, high or low socioeconomic student populations, urban or suburban district socioeconomic communities, and learn approaches immediately applicable to your classroom.  Perhaps most of all, you will connect with a group of committed professionals of like mind on mission together to bring  excellence to every student, make authentic professional community available to every teacher, and multiply brilliant STEM teachers into our schools.

Who should attend?

New teachers:  Come and see!  If you are new to the STEM classroom, come connect with local veteran teachers and access their expertise and mentoring, deepen your content knowledge, and get connected to international best practice pedagogies and national organizations dedicated to your long-term success and your becoming a brilliant teacher. 

Veteran teachers:  Come and see!  If you are a practicing, veteran STEM teacher, that humble yet confident teacher always looking to improve your practice and ready to learn from others as well as share your expertise, come learn and lead with us!
