At the winter meeting in San Diego, AAPT will be launching its first ever Two Year College Day on Monday, January 8th! TYC faculty who have never attended a national AAPT Meeting will be able to receive a discounted one day registration fee of $85. This fee is much less than the usual early bird one-day registration fee of $260 for AAPT members and $475 for non-members. We are offering this special registration fee because we want you to be a part of the rich conversations on physics teaching and education with colleagues from High Schools, other TYCs, and Colleges and Universities from around the world. AAPT benefits from the diverse experience and expertise of its members and we want to provide this opportunity for you to sample all that AAPT has to offer. 

Here is a sample of what will be happening on TYC Day!tyc day photo 2
