These workshops provide hands-on modeling for science and math instruction. Participants will learn to use a variety of programs including Netlogo, a free open-source simulation software, to create computer models that will enhance their curricula.
Workshop 1: TThis 3-day workshop introduces the concepts behind computer modeling and simulation, and real-world applications. Participants will interact with LLNL scientists and learn how simulation is used in their work. NetLogo and other software will be introduced as modeling tools.
Workshop 2: This 5-day workshop is designed for teachers who want an introduction to computer modeling and for those who want to expand their knowledge of programming with NetLogo. The flexible curriculum will allow returnees to develop applications that will enhance their STEM curriculum by presenting model(s) and lesson plans to the group while also providing first-timers the opportunity to learn about modeling and simulation.
