We believe that having students create models is the most powerful teaching tool available. The modeling process allows students to dig deep into phenomena and learn at a level that will challenge their understanding of their surroundings, impacting them for the rest of their lives.
The goal of this project is to bring Modeling and Computational Thinking into as many classrooms as possible. We understand that having students create models is not a single day activity, but rather, it is a journey. This website is meant to be a resource for teachers and students to facilitate that journey and scaffold both the modeling process as well as the pedagogy of teaching modeling in the classroom.
As a visitor to this site, you are likely here for one of these reasons:
I. To learn about the pedagogy of teaching modeling.
II. To learn how to code and for lessons to help teach your students NetLogo.
III. To look up NetLogo keywords and coding techniques using the NetLogo Wiki.
IV. To access content specific modeling lessons aligned to CCSS-M and NGSS.
V. To learn about the STEMccm project.
