Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image Wittenberg
1:00 PM - 3:30 PM

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.
Event Image The Great America Sing-Along
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Come join the AMRC and choral conductor Jason St. Claire for its first Great American Sing-Along in Longmont! In cool comfort follow the words to traditional and familiar tunes in overhead projections and sing your heart out assisted by volunteer song leaders. A family-friendly event, fun for all ages and music abilities. Free parking and free Lemonade! Westview Presbyterian Church, Longmont (15th and Hover) Sunday, July 5th, 3:00 - 4:00 pm.
Event Image Othello
6:30 PM - 9:00 PM

So will I turn her virtue into pitch and out of her own goodness make the net that shall enmesh them all.
Directed by Lisa Wolpe

In a country at war, Othello the Moor commands with authority and nobility of spirit, drawing strength from his bold and beautiful wife, Desdemona. But he has placed his trust in one of Shakespeare’s most sinister villains, Iago, who would sow seeds of doubt and destruction in the garden of their love. Passion, jealousy and murder explode in a sexy theatrical thriller that tumbles toward a diabolical finale in CSF’s first outdoor production of this great tragedy since 1996.

Free Public Lecture, "Crumpling and Wrinkling of Polymers and Membranes"
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The 2015 Boulder School for Condensed Matter and Material Physics presents,

"Crumpling and Wrinkling of Polymers and Membranes"

Delivered by: David Nelson, Harvard University

Motivated by a revolution in polymer science, ranging from synthetic materials to biopolymers (DNA, RNA) and their membrane generalizations (red blood cell cytoskeleton), theoretical physicist David Nelson will discuss how entropy leads to crumpling and wrinkling of these fascinating systems characterized by fractional dimensions. The physics of thermal wrinkling, as revealed by recent experiments on free-standing atomically this graphite sheets, leads to a 6000-fold enhancement in their bending resistance at room temperature.

David Nelson is a Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences who studies the fascinating world of modern ‘soft’ condensed matter and physical biology. He is the Arthur K. Solomon professor of physics and applied physics at Harvard University. He has received the Bardeen Prize, Buckley Prize, and a MacArthur Prize Fellowship.

Supported by the National Science Foundation, Materials Theory

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

7:30 PM - 10:00 PM

“Hilarity, thy name is Wittenberg.” — The New York Times
Directed by Timothy Orr

To believe or not to believe? That is the question when Prince Hamlet, a dazed-and-confused senior at Wittenberg University, circa 1517, is caught in the crossfire between two giants of philosophy — and ego — the freethinking skeptic Dr. Faustus and stuffy, guilt-ridden Martin Luther. Punny, funny, brainy and zany, David Davalos’ ingenious mashup is equal parts Tom Stoppard, campus caper and metaphysical mind-trip. Colorado premier.

8:00 PM - 10:30 PM

I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
Directed by Jim Helsinger

Romantic, raucous and razor-sharp, the Hamlet of Shakespeare comedies strikes hilarious chords even as it reveals timeless truths about love, change and acceptance. The men have returned victorious from war, but the merry sparring — and sparks — between Benedick the stubborn bachelor and witty, self-assured Beatrice have just begun.

The Institute is limited to 24 graduate students and 8 mentors who will also meet in smaller working groups of 6 students and 2 mentors throughout the week.

Application Process
________________________________________________________________________________

Applications were due in February and accepted students have been notified. 24 students will be attending the 2015 Sandra K. Abell Institute. Consideration was given to a broad geographical distribution of attendees, and the intellectual orientation of the work. Although PhD students actively engaged in research at any stage of their programs were invited to apply, preference was given to students working on their doctoral dissertations. The following criteria were used to assess the applications:

  • Conceptualization of the problem – Is this an interesting problem to study? Are there potential contributions to the field of science education?
  • Articulation of the problem and the research – Is the proposal coherent? Is there evidence that the student has an adequate research background to conduct the work?
  • Relation of the work to practice and/or policy – Is there a direct or indirect connection to practice and policy?
  • Potential benefit in participating in the Institute – Is the student in a place to benefit from participation in the program?

The quality of each student application was assessed by three reviewers working independently. These reviewers were experienced science education researchers from within the NARST community.

Aquetza: Youth Leadership, Education and Community Empowerment program (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Aquetza is a free, one-week summer residential program on the Campus of CU Boulder which will provide high school students with strong ties to Latin@/Chican@ and historically marginalized communities from across Colorado with an interactive, academic enrichment experience focused on engaging youth in examining the history, literature, health science, and relevant social and political issues surrounding their cultural communities, through rigorous academic work in ethnic studies, writing, reading, and science. 

Through our programming, attendees will have opportunities to see themselves as scholars – as holders and producers of new and valuable knowledge – as well as a chance to develop the skills to become leaders in their communities, pursue higher education, and make positive change in their worlds.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

Design-Based Implementation (BDIR) Workshop (Multi-Day Event)
9:00 AM

OVERVIEW

Barry Fishman, Bill Penuel, and Tiffany Lee will be offering a two-and-a-half day workshop on design-based implementation research. The workshop is for individuals and teams interested in learning about how to develop proposals for, organize, and write about DBIR research projects. The workshop will be targeted to individual researchers in K-12, higher education, and informal settings, as well as to teams that comprise both researchers and practitioners from these settings. Teams may be composed of participants from either newly forming or mature research-practice partnerships.

The workshop will take place at the University of Colorado Boulder on July 16-18, 2015.

Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain practice with using tools and routines for negotiating the focus of joint work in a partnership
  • Learn about ways to organize the collaborative design process equitably and to fit local circumstances
  • Analyze different plans for studying and using implementation evidence
  • Devise strategies for local capacity building within their teams and in local educational systems

Directed by Carolyn Howarth

England’s crown rests on the head of the once wild and undisciplined acolyte of Falstaff, Prince Hal, now a wise and noble monarch leading his country into war with France. Rousing and cinematic in scope, Henry V raises compelling questions about leadership in a troubled world that powerfully echoes our own. With this production, CSF completes the four-play Henriad history cycle begun in 2013.

Aquetza: Youth Leadership, Education and Community Empowerment program (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Aquetza is a free, one-week summer residential program on the Campus of CU Boulder which will provide high school students with strong ties to Latin@/Chican@ and historically marginalized communities from across Colorado with an interactive, academic enrichment experience focused on engaging youth in examining the history, literature, health science, and relevant social and political issues surrounding their cultural communities, through rigorous academic work in ethnic studies, writing, reading, and science. 

Through our programming, attendees will have opportunities to see themselves as scholars – as holders and producers of new and valuable knowledge – as well as a chance to develop the skills to become leaders in their communities, pursue higher education, and make positive change in their worlds.

Event Image EXHIBIT : PRINT THE LEGEND - The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

A larger than life Buffalo Bill-like character, Joseph Bevier Sturtevant took on the alter ego of Rocky Mountain Joe when Chautauqua opened its doors in 1898. A skilled photographer and self-described Boulder icon promoting the romance of frontier life, Sturtevant sold the nostalgia of the Wild West to early 20th century tourists. Sturtevant skillfully created extravagant tales of growing up on the Western Frontier, fighting in the Civil War and battling Plains Indians that for more than 100 years went unquestioned.  

"Print the Legend: The Real Story Behind Photographer Rocky Mountain Joe" aims to separate the fact from fiction of Sturtevant’s life. The exhibit includes Sturtevant’s photographs and displays of painting tools and photography equipment similar to those that he would have used.  

One of Colorado’s most distinctive yet little-known photographers, Rocky Mountain Joe’s legend is timeless and his photographs open up a window to the past that still shapes our own nostalgic vision of an earlier time. His legacy lives on in the thousands of photographs he took in and around Boulder, making the town's history much richer through his artistic vision.

Event Image EXHIBIT: STEPS IN STONE, WALKING THROUGH TIME (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Running, walking, hopping or even slithering - the movements of animals across the landscape are captured in the tracks they leave behind. Some tracks last only a few moments and others become fossils that endure for millions of years. Steps in Stone: Walking Through Time features real fossil tracks and trackways from the University of Colorado Museum of Natural History collections.

Interactive exhibits invite children and adults alike to explore how animals, from insects to dinosaurs, moved across the earth, how their tracks became fossils, and how we study tracks to learn more about ancient landscapes and animals. The exhibit features never before exhibited trackway fossils from the collection of paleontologist Martin Lockley, recently retired from the University of Colorado-Denver.

SKAIDS @ CU Conference (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

The 2015 Sandra K. Abell Institute for Doctoral Students (a.k.a. SKAIDS @ CU) will be a four-day residential experience on the campus of the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado and will focus on Research-Practice PartnershipsIt will offer doctoral student participants opportunities to build a community of science education scholars amongst themselves, with the co-directors and organizing team, and with faculty mentors recruited from other campuses.

SKAIDS @ CU will be held at the University of Colorado campus in Boulder, Colorado from July 12-17, 2015. The Institute is designed to involve a focused and energetic group of young scholars who have completed their basic research coursework, who have a clear idea of the direction of their project but who also have room for change in an emerging proposal or early stages of research. The Institute is limited to 24 graduate students and 8 mentors who will also meet in smaller working groups of 6 students and 2 mentors throughout the week.

Application Process
________________________________________________________________________________

Applications were due in February and accepted students have been notified. 24 students will be attending the 2015 Sandra K. Abell Institute. Consideration was given to a broad geographical distribution of attendees, and the intellectual orientation of the work. Although PhD students actively engaged in research at any stage of their programs were invited to apply, preference was given to students working on their doctoral dissertations. The following criteria were used to assess the applications:

  • Conceptualization of the problem – Is this an interesting problem to study? Are there potential contributions to the field of science education?
  • Articulation of the problem and the research – Is the proposal coherent? Is there evidence that the student has an adequate research background to conduct the work?
  • Relation of the work to practice and/or policy – Is there a direct or indirect connection to practice and policy?
  • Potential benefit in participating in the Institute – Is the student in a place to benefit from participation in the program?

The quality of each student application was assessed by three reviewers working independently. These reviewers were experienced science education researchers from within the NARST community.

Design-Based Implementation (BDIR) Workshop (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

OVERVIEW

Barry Fishman, Bill Penuel, and Tiffany Lee will be offering a two-and-a-half day workshop on design-based implementation research. The workshop is for individuals and teams interested in learning about how to develop proposals for, organize, and write about DBIR research projects. The workshop will be targeted to individual researchers in K-12, higher education, and informal settings, as well as to teams that comprise both researchers and practitioners from these settings. Teams may be composed of participants from either newly forming or mature research-practice partnerships.

The workshop will take place at the University of Colorado Boulder on July 16-18, 2015.

Participants in the workshop will have the opportunity to:

  • Gain practice with using tools and routines for negotiating the focus of joint work in a partnership
  • Learn about ways to organize the collaborative design process equitably and to fit local circumstances
  • Analyze different plans for studying and using implementation evidence
  • Devise strategies for local capacity building within their teams and in local educational systems
  • Discuss approaches to publishing results from DBIR studies
