Wendy Adams to Visit

A second presenter for the October 26th joint annual UNL Astronomy Education Workshop and fall meeting of the Nebraska Chapter of the American Association of Physics Teachers has accepted an invitation. Wendy Adams is an associate professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Northern Colorado. She is the former co-director of the University of Colorado's PhET Interactive Simulations Project and from 2010 to 2013 she served as the Education Coordinator of the Acoustical Society of America. Her present interests focus upon problem solving evaluation, low stakes assessment and evaluation, student perceptions of science, and integration of education research results into courses and curricula. Wendy will be making a presentation on problem solving evaluation, teaching a workshop on PhET materials, and helping to coordinate another workshop on acoustics.

Wendy joins Galaxy and Dark Matter Researcher Beth Willman of Haverford College who had committed previously to presenting.
