Summer is a great time to relax and recharge for the school year.  It is also a great time to focus on your own professional development both as a teacher and a scientist.  Taking part of your summer to attend a program or workshop is an investment in you and your classroom that will pay dividends that you could never predict.

Here are some summer Physics experiences for teachers.   Some pay stipends, some are free, some have costs associated.  All of them are worthwhile!      If you have any to add, please pass them on to the Executive Board and we will post them here.

                    Note:  Summer Opportunities for Students can be found here.
