    Physics Film Fiesta / Holiday Party

    Friday December 8 , 2017   6 -9 pm   

    Princeton University   Room A-10   Jadwin Hall


    We're making a change to our usual Holiday Treats event.

    This year, we will be having a Holiday get-together for Physics Teachers which will feature some fun Physics films/videos.

    There will be pizza, give-aways, auction items, and the "green table", plus meeting and talking with other Physics teachers in NJ.

    [the "green table" is where teachers bring items (books, equipment) that they do not need/use, to give away to other teachers who may want them.  This is a great way to re-use, recycle resources, and contribute to other teachers].

    This event is FREE, but please register in advance (on the Home page) by Nov 30, so we have a headcount for food, etc.  This event is open to NJAAPT members + guests.

    We hope to see you all there.  It will be a lot of fun.  Events with Physics teachers are always fun!
