You may register for one or both days and there is a savings for the two-day attendance. Friday will include a wine and cheese reception, buffet dinner, and a talk entitled: “A Ray of Light in a Sea of Dark Matter” by Charles Keeton of Rutgers University.
Saturday will include registration, breakfast, and lunch. Wil van der Veen, the Program Director of the NJ Astronomy Center for Education, will address the Next Generation Science Standards discussing all the sciences. This would provide a rare opportunity for you to invite other members of your department to hear about the new standards. Revisions in the AP Physics B course will be discussed by Patty Zober, a Pennsylvania high school physics teacher and leader of workshops related to the changes. There will also be breakout sessions to discuss these topics and another to answer as many questions as possible on the subjects. The meeting will conclude with a demonstration show conducted by the Princeton University staff.
