New Physics Teacher Workshop @ USC, Saturday Aug 25

Posted in Uncategorized on 08.08.12 by Frank

There will be a New Physics Teachers Workshop at USC on Saturday
August 25.  The workshop will be for high school physics teachers who
are new to teaching or experienced teachers who have recently been
drafted into teaching physics.

Probably many people on this list are not “new physics teachers” but
would each of you take a little time to think about people you know or
have heard about that might benefit from this experience.

Free Equipment, Free Lunch, Free Parking!  There will be equipment
giveaways, and help with building a laboratory curriculum.  Teachers
who attended last year are still welcome to come but we ask that they
bring another teacher.

Anyone who is interested, please RSVP to

Here is a sample program for the event:

Workshop Focus:  Newtonian Mechanics and Heat & Thermodynamics

8:00–9:00am    Coffee, donuts, etc.  Gathering time.
9:00–10:30    Welcome, Demonstrations as Lecture Components.
10:30–11:00   A careful look at the California Physics Standards.
