Research 411 Talk Show: Scaffolded Training Environment for Physics Programming (STEPP)

Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Instead of passively listening to lectures, our program offers a more dynamic and interactive approach. The result is students have more time to conduct experiments. A Scaffolded Training Environment for Physics Programming (STEPP) uses the arts to guide students as they create simulations that turn abstract theory into observable phenomena. A University of Texas at Dallas multi-interdisciplinary team developed a three-STEPP learning module based on 1D/2D kinematics and Newton’s Laws of Motion. 

Join Office of Research and Innovation as we host Dr. Paul Fishwick, Dr. Rosanna Guadagno, Dr. Michael Kesden, Dr. Midori Kitagawa, and Dr. Mary Urquhart to learn more about the interactive Scaffolded Training Environment for Physics Programming (STEPP) at this Research 411 talk show.
