CADRE teamed up with NSTA to organize a Twitter chat on scientific modeling in grades K-5. The #NSTAchat Twitter chat was facilitated by NSTA. National Science Foundation-funded education researchers answered questions (such as those below) and shared their expertise. Participants shared their resources and experiences.

  1. What does modeling look like in the classroom?
  2. What makes models and modeling ‘scientific’?
  3. What should students do with models in the classroom?
  4. How do we support students to engage in scientific modeling?
  5. Where can we find resources on modeling in the classroom?
