PTRA Workshop -- The PTRA (Physics Teachers Resource Agents) group from AAPT will be conducting an optional 3-hour workshop Saturday afternoon entitled, "Topics from Modern Physics: Quantum Computing and Gravitational Waves" . If you wish to attend, it is an additional $30 on the meeting registration. This PTRA workshop will focus on activities that lead students (and teachers !) to an understanding of quantum computing and gravitational waves, using materials from the Perimeter Institute and Quantum Computing Institute. Sounds intriguing ! Cost is $30 per participant for the 3- hour workshop. Workshop leaders are Steve Henning and Alice Flarend. General info about the PTRA group here.
Professional Development hours will be provided by NJAAPT.
