Elementary School module on Water resources
In collaboration with Education Development Center, the Project GUTS Earth Science module was modified to work as an "overlay" on top of an existing 5th grade Water Cycle lesson. The add-on to the existing lesson consisted of an Introduction to StarLogo Nova, then decoding the water pumping base model with teacher support, followed by adding another pump and running an experiment. The teacher professional development on the new module was a success and this fall we will see how feasible this new style of module is in the classroom.

Instagram and social media links
With the assistance of Sarah Wagner, our Project GUTS intern from Harvard Graduate School of Education, we are incorporating Instagram into our social media options for the Teachers with GUTS community. The Teachers with GUTS Instagram account will be used as another way to share important information, updates, and video tutorials about Project GUTS and StarLogo Nova.
