Size Matters!


Our Annual Physics Teachers Workshop will be held on December 9th 2016 at the Department of Physics, University of Alberta. This year, we have chosen Black Holes and Gravitational Waves as our topic. Dr. Patrick Brady from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is our invited speaker. The full day’s program will have material that is easily applied in Physics and Science at the high school level.  Everyone will get to leave with classroom-ready resources. The Outreach team from the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics will be present. They will be sharing additional resources, PD opportunities and learning opportunities for students.

The registration fee for this one-day workshop is $75 ($40 for students and retired teachers).

There may be additions to the program, and if so, they will be posted here.
