Dear Physics Teacher,
Our organizing committee would like to invite you to our annual Physics Teachers Meeting and Workshop on Friday December 7, 2012. This year we have planned some talks that our Science 20 and 30 colleagues may also find interesting. Our speakers include Dr. Craig Heinke (The Death and Afterlives on Stars), Dr. Richard Marchand (Space Exploration and Enviroment), and Drs. Peter Mahaffy and Brian Martin (Global Warning(s) – What the Earth is Trying to Tell Us). Workshops include ‘Using visualizations of the science behind climate change to change the climate of science teaching’ with Drs. Brian Martin and Peter Mahaffy and a ‘Make and Take Workshop’ with Laura Pankratz and Jeff Goldie. For a schedule of talks, please see the registration form.
The cost for the day is $40 and includes refreshments and lunch at the Faculty Club. Please register by Dec 5, 2012. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or credit card.
