Safeguarding Heritage Sites in the Middle East - March 8, 2018


[cid:ef2a689e-4949-433e-969c-d843c55f2bb9]



Damage to archaeological and historic sites is ongoing on a grand scale in the Middle East due to the current conflicts in the region.  World-wide, people are working to do what they can to preserve what remains and discourage further destruction. In this lecture, Blythe McCarthy of the Smithsonian’s Freer|Sackler will discuss these and other aspects of programs to protect and preserve cultural heritage in Iraq and Syria that she worked on during her recent experience as a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the Department of State's Cultural Heritage Center.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

PASCO Spectrometer for Biology and Chemistry  - April 25, 2018 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM PST

We will show you how PASCO’s Wireless Spectrometer is used in Advanced Biology and Chemistry courses. The Spectrometer is a Bluetooth device that allows the user to see the absorbance or transmittance of a sample solution.

For the Biologists, we will analyze the catalyzed decomposition of hydrogen peroxide, an enzymatic reaction that can be monitored using guaiacol. We will also look at the absorbance of the chlorophyll molecule and relate it to pigment color and photosynthetic activity.

Then for the Chemists, we will develop a Beer’s Law curve and determine the concentration of an unknown solution with the help of the software’s easy to use displays. After that, we will determine the order of a Crystal Violet and NaOH reaction from its absorbance curve.

Finally, we'll attach a fiber optic cable to the Spectrometer and will look at the emission spectra from hydrogen and use the software to identify the element from reference lines.



Bonus: Throughout the webinar, we'll compare the Wireless Spectrometer to the new Wireless Colorimeter.

Interested but can’t attend live? Register anyway and we’ll automatically email you a link to the session recording about a day after it's held.

If the session you're interested in is full, you can email onlinepd at pasco.com<mailto:onlinepd at pasco.com> and request the recording.

Learn the skills to make a difference in science education policy.

The American Association of Physics Teachers and the American Institute of Physics believe classroom teachers can (and should) be policy leaders. Through a program funded by the AIP Venture Partnership Fund, we seek to engage, empower and support K-12 classroom teachers of physics and physical science (including elementary teachers) as agents of change in physics education.











Get compensated for your expenses.

Funding will be provided for travel, meals and accommodations for two summer workshops in Washington, DC. Following the first summer workshop, participants will be expected to carry out their strategic plans for policy engagement during the 2018-2019 academic year.

























Choose your passion and engage others in your community.

Using a "problem-based learning approach," Fellows will use the workshop to explore solutions to their identified policy issue, learn about case studies in science policy from experienced science policy leaders and receive feedback from high profile people in local, state and national science education policy.

  *   Legislative Action
  *   District guidelines for professional practice
  *   State-level implementation of standards for learning and teacher professional development
  *   Availability of funds for content growth
  *   Equitable access to physics and physical science across all schools or grade levels
  *   Curricular materials and instructional resources
  *   Framework for K-12 Science Education and NGSS
