Project GUTS

Teachers from the Gadsden School District were invited to attend a day-long professional development given by the STEM Outreach Center, to fine tune their computer programming skills. Teachers learned how to use Starlogo Nova, a client-based modeling and simulation software that allows teachers and students to create 3D simulations for understanding complex systems. By the end of the day, teachers had built a model which simulates the effect of solar radiation and albedo on temperature. These teachers then take their new learned skills and implement them into their teaching during the after school program Project GUTS (Growing Up Thinking Scientifically).
