Thank you for sharing your ideas and suggestions. I'll be sure to pass them along to the HS physics teacher. I think he was looking for more information regarding the use of software for computational modeling with HS students. I found this article online ( https://ddd.uab.cat/pub/artpub/2015/199480/SCRATCH_PhysicsEducation_pertraduir_en_revisat_DDD.pdf ) but was wondering if there are other opti...

As an elementary science teacher, I'm at a loss on how to help. Any information and ideas, including software to use, ...
