Free full-day workshops to explore tools for supporting students in systems modeling and data science!

CODAP and SageModeler Workshops for Teachers

GMRI is pleased to host Dan Damelin from the Concord Consortium, for a deep dive into two open source web-based tools that create new possibilities for students to engage in modeling and data analysis with real-world datasets. Join us for a fun, thought-provoking, and creative experience at one or both of these FREE workshops.

Thursday, November 30, 2023, 9:00am to 3:00pm - CODAP and sensemaking with data modeling:

CODAP (the Common Online Data Analysis Platform) is a data exploration tool designed to support students in learning how to answer questions with data. Easily import existing data sets, use plugins to capture output from simulations, and import data directly from sensors. CODAP’s intuitive drag-and-drop interface for creating visualizations has been used in grades 5 and up.

Friday, December 1, 2023, 9:00am to 3:00pm - SageModeler and systems:

SageModeler has been used from upper elementary to undergraduate for supporting students in simulating their own models. Students can test their own ideas about how parts of a system work together. Great for ecosystem modeling, but applicable in many fields, SageModeler provides a unique way to engage students in modeling without coding or writing complex equations.

When you click the “details” button you will be able to sign up for one or both of the workshops.
