Gunckel, Kristin L.; Covitt, Beth A.; Love, Garrett; Cooper-Wagoner, Judith A.; Moreno, Dan – Science Teacher, 2022
Computers and computer algorithms have contributed to important scientific advances by allowing scientists and engineers to create and use sophisticated models to explain and predict phenomena. Yet, of the eight "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS") science and engineering practices, computational thinking may be the…

Mason, Kevin; Schieffer, Steve; Rose, Tara; Matthias, Greg – Science Teacher, 2022
A problem-solving experiment is a learning activity that uses experimental design to solve an authentic problem. It combines two evidence-based teaching strategies: problem-based learning and inquiry-based learning. The use of problem-based learning and scientific inquiry as an effective pedagogical tool in the science classroom has been well…

Sagrans, Jacob; Mokros, Janice; Voyer, Christine; Harvey, Meggie – Science Teacher, 2022
The use of large, open-source data sets is ubiquitous in scientific research. Scientists--ranging from meteorologists to chemists to epidemiologists--are researching and investigating critical questions using data that they have not themselves collected. To contribute to the growing effort to bring data science into classrooms, the authors have…

Van Doren, Seth; Hardy, Lisa; Dixon, Colin; Hsi, Sherry – Science Teacher, 2022
Long before the "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS") were formalized, sensors and other probeware engaged students in science and engineering practices (Metcalf and Tinker 2004). A new generation of probeware based on modern Internet of Things (IoT) technologies is beginning to expand the ways that students can…

Xiang, Lin; Diamond, Scott – Science Teacher, 2022
Over the past year, educators have developed curricula teaching about the COVID-19 pandemic (Reed 2020; Royce 2020; Sadler et al. 2020). Many of these curricula feature computer simulations of epidemic dynamics (Kelter 2020; Sadler et al. 2020). Because an epidemic pattern is an emergent property of interacting human behaviors, it is crucial for…

Prior-Grosch, Ariadne; Woodruff, Karen – Science Teacher, 2022
Fall 2020 presented myriad challenges for teachers trying to plan curricula to meet students' social-emotional and learning needs following an unprecedented spring and summer of isolation and loss due to the pandemic caused by SARS-CoV-2 (Rivera and Wallace 2020). The result of creative planning and adjusting of curricula for remote instruction…

Gonczi, Amanda; Palosaari, Chuck; Mayer, Alex; Urban, Noel – Science Teacher, 2022
Computational modeling and thinking skill sets were previously relegated to computer scientists and programmers. As a result, computational tools are largely unfamiliar to K-12 science teachers and students. Using Mathematical and Computational Thinking and Developing and Using Models were included in the "Next Generation Science…

Goodman, Sarah – Science Teacher, 2022
In an effort to clean up the Chesapeake Bay, Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) members use hands-on experiential learning opportunities to train teacher ambassadors throughout the bay's jurisdictions. Teacher ambassadors use the skills they learn to develop a Meaningful Watershed Educational Experience (MWEE) for their students to raise awareness of…

Hardy, Lisa; Dixon, Colin; Van Doren, Seth; Hsi, Sherry – Science Teacher, 2022
In science classrooms, students usually see and work with data that's intended to tell them right away about the natural world. Students then often treat the data we provide to them as factual, rather than as a source of evidence (Duschl 2008; Sandoval and Millwood 2005; Berland and Reiser 2009; McNeill and Berland 2017; Hancock, Kaput, and…

Stilwell, Matthew D.; Yao, Chunhua; Vajko, Dale; Jeffery, Kelly; Powell, Douglas; Wang, Xudong; Gillian-Daniel, Anne Lynn – Science Teacher, 2021
What if "every breath you take, every move you make" (Sting 1983) could be harnessed to produce renewable energy? Triboelectric nanogenerators (TENGs) are state-of-the-art devices researchers are studying to do just that--convert kinetic energy into electrical energy at the source (Saurabh Rathore 2018). This type of electrical energy is…

Cizmas, Emily – Science Teacher, 2021
Ecosystems, interacting systems of biotic and abiotic factors, are a fascinating topic in life science. The "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS Lead States 2013) recognize "Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics" (HS-LS2) as one of four overarching ideas in life science that students should understand. Student…

Akdemir, Zeynep Gonca; Menekse, Muhsin; Hosseini, Mahdi; Nandi, Arindam; Furuya, Keiichiro – Science Teacher, 2021
Quantum technologies refer to any technology developed based on the principles of quantum physics. Quantum communication, quantum computing, and quantum sensing are applications of such technologies, in which quantum mechanics underpins the key assumptions on their design and development. Quantum technologies promise revolutionary and disruptive…

Nasr, Nancy – Science Teacher, 2021
America's current student demographics reflect greater diversity than ever before. With the increased enrollment of Black and Latinx students in American schools (NCES 2019), the importance of providing science students with classroom experiences embracing diversity is greater than ever. Experiences that spark an interest in Science, technology,…

Alsultan, Jawaher; Rice, Madison; Feldman, Allan; Nkrumah, Tara; Ergas, Sarina; Ghebremichael, Kebreab – Science Teacher, 2021
The use of unsafe water as a source for drinking, cooking, and bathing can lead to serious health complications. Point of Use (POU) water treatment technologies can play an important role in making safe and clean drinking water available to communities. One low-cost, low-technology POU system is the biosand filter (BSF). BSFs offer an effective…

Rock, Carly A.; Whitworth, Brooke A. – Science Teacher, 2021
At the core of an effective model-based inquiry (MBI) unit is a scientifically rich, complex phenomenon that serves as the reason for engagement and drives student sensemaking and investigations throughout the unit. Engaging in iterative attempts to explain phenomena over the course of an MBI unit allows the opportunity for students to construct…
