This course will not be offered Summer 2013.

This week-long course is especially appropriate for 4th and 5th grade teachers. The course will utilize concrete materials and multiple forms of representation in order to more fully understand the concepts of energy transfer and transformation, conservation of energy in systems, and the relationship of forces to energy. Explicit connections to relevant state science standards and Next Generation Science Standards will be discussed. Some time will be devoted to exploring how learning opportunities centered on energy concepts can be incorporated into existing science units. Some of the units we have considered in past summers are: Balls and Ramps, Circuits and Pathways, Ecosystems, Models and Designs, Microworlds, and Land and Water.

Stipend of $750 and three 5000-level physics credits or thirty clock hours are available. Registration fee for credits ($150) or clock hours ($60) applies.

To apply for enrollment, email PhysicsEnergyProject@SPU.edu. If the course is full at the time of your email, you will be placed on a waiting list.
