FALL DEMO DAY will be Saturday October 15th at Science Leadership Academy in Phila.
Coffee and snacks ($5) and registration: 8:30 am Demos begin at 9:00 am.
Please register now by contacting Barry Feierman (email@example.com).
If you are planning on bringing a demonstration, please write a short description. Students will be available to help unload equipment at the door. A week before the event I will send out a list of all of the demos.
In addition to demos, the SEPS leadership is considering holding two discussion groups at the end of the demo session.
1) Experiences of Advanced Placement 1/2 teachers and curriculum
2) Experiences of Physics First (9th grade) teachers and curriculum
If either of these two topics is of interest for you, please contact Barry at the above address,and the SEPS leadership will consider adding this to the regular FALL DEMO event this year.
We have a number of schools now offering AP 1 and/or AP 2 and a number of schools, both public and independent, that have been teaching Physics in 9th grade for a decade or more, and those teachers can share their own experiences, labs, etc.
Also reminder .... SEPS AAPT will be holding two FREE Workshops this fall. (for paid members) with ACT 48 credits available. Workshops have coffee/registration at 8:30 and workshop begins at 9:00 am.
