This application is for clock hours (i.e., non-credit) in Modeling Instruction for Summer 2024, and must be completed in its entirety.

The ASU Department of Physics allows up to a percentage of participants to be non-credit if space is available. Priority will be given to teachers who commit to future leadership in effective science instruction.

Selected applicants do not need to apply to ASU. No registration fee; each Modeling Workshop is FREE, thanks to an investment by Arizona Public Service.

Feel free to contact Jane Jackson at with any questions.

Deadline to apply: Thursday, May 30, 2024.


  • Be at least one of the following:
    • an in-service science or math teacher.
    • pre-service science or math teacher.
    • plan to start teaching math or science in the next year.


  • Must complete and submit coursework on time.
  • Will notify instructor of absence as soon as possible.
