Submit an abstract



Are you doing something that should be shared with other physics teachers?  Will it take more time than the five-minute limit in Share-and-Tell?  In that case, please sign up to present either a poster, presentation or workshop.  We’ll start the conference with our poster session, and close with contributed talks.

In order to encourage people to contribute posters, we will print 3×2 posters at a subsidized rate, $5 for K-12 teachers and student teachers, and $25 for college and university professors. These posters should be submitted as PDF files, and this offer has a deadline of November 6.  Once your abstract is registered, you will be emailed additional instructions.

What topics can be covered?  Anything that tickles your fancy as a physics teacher that you think will help our community.  This could be a neat experiment, original research, cool projects for your students, a report-back from a field trip that worked, an innovative way to approach grading, or anything else that you would like to share with fellow teachers.

But what if you’ve never done a poster?  Here are some templates plus a sample poster:

Here are some more links that might help get you started:

At the end of the day, don’t get too caught up on how pretty or ugly the poster looks, we want to hear your ideas!

For those printing out their own posters, let’s max out at roughly four feet by four feet.
