AAPT Summer Meeting 2019 in Provo, UT

K-12 Teachers' Day

A special day has been prepared on Monday, July 22 for K-12 physics teachers and administrators who have never attended a national AAPT Meeting.  Qualified teachers and administrators will receive a discounted registration fee of $85. This fee is much less the the usual early-bird one-day registration fee of $395 for AAPT members and $610 for non-members.  We are offering this special registration fee, because we want to encourage you to sample what AAPT has to offer K-12 educators. We are confident that once you see what AAPT has to offer, you will become an active AAPT member.
