Arizona State University in Tempe offers four Modeling Workshops (June 5-23 and July 5-18, 2017) and three more courses. All courses are graduate level in rigor & depth. They are for all high school physics, physical science, & chemistry teachers, for two-year-college faculty, and pre-service teachers.


This STEM program can lead to an interdisciplinary Master of Natural Science (MNS) degree.


ASU Modeling Instruction and MNS degree programs are designated Accomplished STEM Programs by Change the Equation, a coalition of Fortune 500 companies. Modeling Instruction won the 2014 Excellence in Physics Education award of the American Physical Society.


Apply to ASU after mid-February but by May 10, to avoid an ASU late fee. Details are at .



       Arizona high school teachers (in-service & pre-service) can apply for a 2/3 tuition scholarship, online after Feb. 7, 2017. (Our thanks to The Boeing Co.)

       MCCCD faculty (including Dual Enrollment) can apply for $250/credit tuition scholarships, if you don't already have 18 graduate credits in physics or chemistry.
