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. |
