High school physics teachers who have not yet attended a national AAPT meeting will receive a special registration fee of $75, which is much less than the usual early bird one-day registration fee of $235 for AAPT members and $450 for non-members. We are offering this special registration fee, because we want to encourage you to sample what AAPT has to offer high school physics teachers. We are confident that once you see what AAPT has to offer, you will become an active AAPT member.
