The Chesapeake Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (CSAAPT, covering Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia) will hold its Fall 2022 Meeting semi-virtually on Saturday, October 22, 2022.
No membership required!
You do not have to be an AAPT or CSAAPT member to attend. We welcome participation of all physics/science teachers and students in the region as well as anyone interested in physics education, or physics in general.
The semiannual CSAAPT meetings are a great forum to exchange ideas on novel teaching techniques and economical physics demonstrations, and to meet a fascinating cohort of physics education enthusiasts.
This meeting is semi-virtual. The in-person venue is the Virginia Tech Northern Virginia Center (Google map) which is a short walk from the West Falls Church - VT/UVA Metro Station (map). The Meeting will be broadcast on Zoom so that people from afar (both presenters and attendees) can join in.
We have limited funds to provide up to $300 in lodging support to high school physics teachers. Please see the Travel and Lodging Info page for details.
You can register to attend either in-person, or virtually via Zoom.
To register, please click on Registration in the menu on the left. Registration for in-person attendance will be open until midnight of Friday, October 14, 2022. This is so that we have a count of how many people will be physically present one week prior to the Meeting. Registration for virtual attendance will be open until midnight of Friday, October 21, 2022.
