NSF grant awarded to PERL team

Physics professors Danny Caballero and Paul Irving along with Education faculty David Stroupe ana Niral Shah were awarded an NSF STEM+C grant to help high school physics teachers integrate computing into their courses and study the effects on learning, instruction, and participation.

This cross-college collaboration blends expertise to engage teachers and students in modern scientific computing work. The team will work with participating teachers and schools to run a week-long professional development workshop and year-long support program. During the school year, researchers will study how students and teachers work together to understand computing and the underlying physical and computational models.

This work was built out of a transformed introductory physics course developed by Caballero and Irving called Projects and Practices in Physics.
