Our chapter has received limited funding that allows us to subsidize dependent care costs for members who otherwise would not be able to attend. We can distribute grants of $75 for parents/caregivers with one dependent or $150 for multiple dependents. Applications are now open for Spring. Continue reading “Dependent Care Grants”
Save the date, we’ll be at the City College of San Francisco for our fall conference. We’ll have a social event at the Mission Science Workshop on the evening of Friday, November 3, from 6-9 (your arrival and departure times are flexible). On Saturday the 4th, we’ll have our main event. Pre-registration has closed, dues will be $25 at the door.
The Saturday highlights include a Q&A with science author Mary Roach, San Jose State’s Brian Holmes on the Physics of Music, a memorial demo show honoring Paul Doherty and an expert panel on how to best serve our transgendered students. And, of course, there will be a poster session, lots of tacos and Share & Tell. Continue reading “We are at CCSF in November!”
We’ll be in Concord for our Spring Meeting!
Our keynote speaker is Jessie Dotson, project scientist for NASA’s K2 Mission. Pictured to the right, she’ll tell us about recent Kepler results. We’ll also have all of the other things that make our meetings so much fun, Share&Tell, a panel, workshops and we are bringing back the poster session. If you paid dues last Fall, registration is free (we’ll send you an email with a discount code), otherwise dues are $20 through Wednesday night, $25 at the door.

We’ll be back at Foothill in April!
Saturday, July 16 – Wednesday, July 20, 2016
Whether you’ve never been to a National meeting, or are a regular attendee, this is a great opportunity to attend with lower travel costs. One day will be a “High School” day, with a lower registration fee for teachers who wish to only attend that day (although we encourage you to attend all days!)
Information can be found here:
- Meeting home page (registration is not up yet, but will appear on this page when it is).
- Abstract submission page. You can either give an eight minute talk, or present a poster at one of the poster sessions. Share your knowledge with others (and remember, some of the ‘posters’ are just presentation slides printed out on 8.5×11 paper–it’s the content that is important, not the style).
If you’d like to help out, there will likely be opportunities to volunteer. Please complete the form below and we’ll get in touch with you.
Maps and carpool info are at the bottom of the page.

If you were at our last meeting, you heard that we were going to change our dues structure. Due to a generous annual donation from the Foothill College Physics Show, we will be able to reduce membership costs to in-the-trenches physics teachers. We will no longer charge fees for our meetings, but will instead revert to a membership model. When you attend a meeting, you will be required to pay a year’s worth of dues. These will be set at $25, although if you register via the web we will discount to $20. Membership covers two meetings (plus associated meals).
