GROWING UP THINKING SCIENTIFICALLY (GUTS) LAB

FOR GRADES :  9 10 11 12 

Growing Up Thinking Scientifically

Integrated science and computer science program for elementary and middle students during and after school. Growing up thinking scientifically means learning to look at the world and to ask questions. Youth are developing and using computer models that help answer questions through scientific inquiry, and using critical thinking to assess which ideas are reasonable and which are not. To grow up thinking scientifically means knowing science to be a computing-rich, dynamic, creative endeavor, a way of thinking, rather than a body of facts.   

You'll Get To...

Attract students by making science and computing relevant and dynamic

Prepare students for future endeavors in STEM and computing fields

Retain student interest by offering open ended challenges

Assess how teachers’ participation in Project GUTS impacts how they

think about and teach STEM and computing in the classrooms
