PTRA Summer Institutes

The AAPT/PTRA summer institutes are typically held on a college campus in conjunction with the Summer Meeting of the AAPT, thus permitting a five-day voluntary extension of professional interaction by also participating in the AAPT meeting at minimal expense to the individual PTRA. The AAPT/PTRA program will pay for the participant’s travel, room and board. Upon participation in a given workshop, the PTRAs are granted certification in that workshop and that workshop is added to the array of workshops that the PTRAs can offer to teachers in her/his local region.
