It with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of
Greg Dolise on 13-August-2016. He was our dear friend and
colleague. Greg faithfully served on the executive board
from 2006-2016. He held the position of our Two Year College Representative.
He was passionate about teaching
and generous in sharing his knowledge and skills with others.
Gregory Dolise was an Associate Professor of Physics at Harrisburg Area Community College.
He taught astronomy as well as physics courses in traditional and online formats.
Greg worked in the aerospace sector,
where he specialized in star simulation and space optics.
On an early job was with Perkin-Elmer on the Hubble Space Telescope,
Greg performed measurements for vibration testing of the secondary mirror,
and helped with design and fabrication of the star simulator to test the Optical

Support for Mini-Meetings
In its ongoing effort and mission to promote physics teaching in high schools and colleges,
AAPT-CPS has developed the concept of "Mini-Meetings".
These are meant to be more local meetings than the annual Spring Conference.
Examples of ideas include such things as talks, workshops, demos, etc.
See the meetings page for examples.
AAPT-CPS would like to help facilite Mini-Meetings.
If you would like to hold an AAPT-CPS mini-meeting, AAPT-CPS will sponsor up to $50 for expenses associated with your event.
We can also help with such things as mailing lists, speakers, brochures.
Please contact an AAPT-CPS officer for more information.
|AAPT-CPS offers 1 year free membership for new AAPT-CPS Conference Meeting attendees. |
