We are returning to Berkeley for our Fall meeting!
Friday October 21
For those that are driving in the night before, or folks who just like to hang out with other physics teachers, we’ve got some Friday night events. We’ll meet at 6 at Pyramids Restaurant: http://www.pyramidsrestaurantandgrill.com/. They feature Egyptian fare, but of course you can always get a burger. At 8 we’ll be at the telescopes at the Chabot Science Center: http://www.chabotspace.org/observatories.htm
Saturday October 22
Our keynote speaker is Bob Jacobsen, Berkeley physics faculty member and the Dean of Undergraduate Studies. If you paid dues last Spring, registration is free (we’ll send you an email with a discount code), otherwise it is $20, which includes lunch and registration for our Spring meeting! The registration link is right here: http://ncnaapt.org/event-registration?ee=38
And while you are at it, get our shirt. They are $7, pick up at the meeting.
Here’s our preliminary schedule for the day (subject to change):
“Dark Matter and Improved Pedagogy – Searching for Elusive Evidence”
A look at the similarities behind doing a search for a new phenomena, and trying to find better pedagogies.
- There will be a 90-minute workshop by Berkeley’s DoseNet
- We’ll have a 45-minute NGSS workshop that will repeat
- We’ll have tours of various Cal research labs and teaching labs
We strongly suggest using public transportation and carpooling. The link for carpooling is https://www.groupcarpool.com/t/4muhxw
