This hands-on session aims to engage participants in a cross-curricular Texting & Driving project. This learning progression, like the 5 others that make-up the Patterns Approach to Physics, integrates PBL, Modeling, and the science and engineering practices. In abbreviated form participants in the session, will begin with the request from Health students to create a customizable App (spreadsheet) that predicts the distances involved while texting and driving, then design solutions, plan and conduct experiments to determine the mathematical models needed to code the App, propose evidence based solutions, and then code it. Participants are asked to read a short article prior.

4 Professional Development Units to be provided upon completion.
