        ASU Modeling Workshops in Physics and Chemistry.

      Arizona State University in Tempe  offers four Modeling Workshops (June 10-28, June 17-28, July 1-19) for high school physics, chemistry, and physical science teachers nationwide. This STEM program can lead to an interdisciplinary Master of Natural Science degree. Modeling Instruction is designated as an Exemplary K-12 science program and a Promising K-12 Educational Technology program by the U.S. Department of Education.

      ASU resident tuition/registration is about $1750 for a 3-credit course. Non-degree registration is easy. Low-cost apartment & family housing can be arranged by Jane Jackson.

      Degree-seeking teachers can apply for forgivable Stafford loans and TEACH grants, if they teach at a high-poverty school (usually Title I), thus making it a FREE master's degree!

      Two-year-college faculty and pre-service teachers are welcome, too.

      Suggested application deadline is May 10, to avoid an ASU late fee.
      Details are at http://modeling.asu.edu/MNS/MNS.html .

      All Arizona teachers can apply for a 1/2 tuition scholarship: download the application form at
      (the MNS webpage), and submit it to Jane.Jackson@....

      * Great chem workshop.
      * It was, without a doubt, the single greatest professional development experience of my career.
      * ASU's summer program is a national treasure!
      * Thanks to taking physics modeling course work, I am highly qualified in physics.
      * I learned more about teaching and physics this summer than in 5 years of college!
      * I LOVE this program!

      Modeling Workshops nationwide in high school physics, chemistry, and biology
      (about 50 in 20 states) are described at
