What is energy? How can I get students to tell the energy story behind complex biological reactions? How can I represent energy and energy transfers in biological systems? If you have had any of these questions then this workshop is for you!
A continuation of our engaging discussion on energy and bonds, this workshop will look specifically into where energy is stored and transferred (how energy is “used”) within the context of biological systems. In the previous workshop, we learned that there has to be energy input when taking particles attracted to each other apart (breaking the bonds), and energy is released when separated particles come together by attractions (forming new bonds). In this workshop, we will examine how this fascinating, universal concept is applied in biology by examining a few key examples such as ATP, bloody chlorophyll and coupling reactions. Participants will come away with some excellent NGSS aligned activities and strategies including how to use the energy bar graph developed in the previous workshop to represent energy changes in biochemical reactions.
All are welcome even if you did not attend last month’s physical science energy workshop – Energy, Bonds, and Avoiding Misconceptions in the STEM Classroom. This workshop will be going on Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 10:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT. Held at the Zankel Hall, Teachers College, Columbia University – 525 W 120th St New York, NY 10027.
Pizza lunch for all at 1 pm!
Note: Please sign up for ONLY 1 workshop on this date not both; As these both workshops are 3 hours and run simultaneously from 10am to 1pm in separate rooms at Teachers College.
WHITEBOARDS & T-SHIRTS
Whiteboards are currently out of stock. We will post a notice on our website and in Eventbrite when we have more to sell – probably within the next 2-3 months. If someone with a car would volunteer to devote several hours to helping us get whiteboards, it would be a big help. You can volunteer by sending an email to info@STEMteachers.org.
You can still buy T-shirts at the workshop, but you must have the exact amount of cash ( $10 each).
PHOTOGRAPHS AND VIDEO RECORDINGS.
We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC – a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.
If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
