    I just got this email and wanted to share it:


    Dear PoLS-T Network Members,

    On behalf of the organizers, I am pleased to announce the launch of the new monthly PoLS-T Network 1-hour Talk Series to begin on Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 11am EDT.

    New Name: ‘PoLS-T Network’
    Our new name reflects the HS Physics Education Network being a part of the larger NSF-funded Physics of Living Systems (PoLS) program.

    Talk Format
    Talks will be pre-taped and approximately 30 minutes long. Talk video will be made available before the scheduled talk date to allow time for review and submitting comments/questions. Talks will be followed by 30 minutes of Q&A, guided discussion and interactive participation depending on the talk topic. Comments and questions can be made via a project process that we will share with the talk video link. If you do pre-watch the talk, you are welcome to join the talk at 11:30am after the talk is played. Talks are free and registration is required. Follow links below.
