The following AAPT/PTRA workshops have been scheduled. If you are interested in attending contact the individual listed below.

The cost of rural regional institutes is free and pays a stipend plus per diem and travel. The cost of an AAPT/PTRA workshop, that isn't a rural institute, is $10.00 per participant per hour. These workshops may be eligible for staff development funding.

Upcoming Workshops
Title: Electricity, Magnestism, and Math for Elementary and Middle Teachers
Date: 06/15/15 - 06/26/15
Time: 08:00 AM - 05:00 PM
Location: University of West Georgia

Description: The Carroll County Schools, Douglas County Schools, University of West Georgia, and American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), are partnering to offer training on physics and mathematics content and teaching techniques on the campus of the University of West Georgia. This professional development (80 hours) is funded by a grant from the Georgia Department of Education’s MSP.

The curriculum for the 2015 project is the study of mathematics, electricity, and magnetism. This workshop material is designed to meet local and state standards. A summer session will be held at UWG June 15-26, 2015; a follow-up will be held on a Saturday in September to be determined by the participants. The workshops are led by nationally trained physics high school teachers, a mathematics professor, and a physics professor, including Ann Robinson, Sharon Kirby, David Todd, David Leach, and Bob Powell.

A pre-workshop meeting of participants will be held after school at central locations in both Carroll and Douglas Counties in April, 2015.

A similar workshop covering mathematics and waves will be offered in 2016.

Applications from teachers at Georgia schools outside the partner school districts will be accepted if the teachers from those partner schools do not fill up the workshop. Participants will receive:

· Stipend for completing all 80 hours

· Mileage for transportation expense

· Registration fees for attending a state professional meeting

· Books and handouts

· Make & Take materials

· PLUs if requested

Teachers are asked to form cohorts of at least one science teacher and at least one mathematics teacher in schools having grades 3-5 and 6-8 to participate in this professional development.
