Adam LaMee (B.S. Physics, B.S. Anthropology, FSU) came to UCF as the new Teacher-in-Residence in the fall of 2015 after teaching high school Physics and Physical Science in Tallahassee, FL since 2003.

He has been a physics content expert on the Florida Department of Education’s teacher certification exams, 6-12 science course curriculum, and Common Core integration and for Newton’s Playground, research into game-based physics learning and assessment funded by the Gates Foundation and US DoD.

Adam’s research includes formative assessment strategies and performance assessment alternatives to large-scale, high-stakes science tests at the Center for Advancement of Learning and Assessment, FSU, and the CMS detector collaboration at CERN’s LHC that discovered the Higgs boson.

In K-12 schools, Adam mentors future and beginning teachers, coordinates Lesson Study and Teachers With Open Doors peer observation with high school faculty, and is a Quarknet Teaching and Learning Fellow.
