Adam LaMee (B.S. Physics, B.S. Anthropology, FSU) is now the PhysTEC Teacher-in-Residence in the University of Central Florida’s Physics department working on teacher recruitment, post-secondary teaching reforms, and K-12 teacher support. Adam’s professional activities include:
- Leading K-12 teacher professional development at the BIOSCOPES Summer Institute and Fermilab's Particle Physics Data Camp, presenting about science assessment and writing strategies and national conferences, mentoring future and beginning teachers, and as a Quarknet Teaching and Learning Fellow. Why is high school physics for all students so important? Here's some interesting info.
- Providing physics content expertise for Florida's Science Standards, the Florida Physics Teacher Certification Examination, and game-based physics learning and assessment research with Newton's Playground, funded by the Gates Foundation.
- Researching high-energy particle interactions as part of the HCAL group of CERN's CMS detector collaboration that announced the discovery of a Higgs-candidate boson in 2012 and performance assessment alternatives to large-scale, high-stakes science tests at FSU's Center for Advancement of Learning and Assessment (published in the September 2014 issue of NSTA's Science Scope).
- Participating in professional development with fellow educators through Teacher With Open Doors peer observation, Lesson Study, Quarknet at FSU, TeachMeet Tally, and as a member of NSTA and AAPT.
