AAPT has two exciting opportunities for Two-Year College Faculty! These two opportunities provide TYC faculty with reduced registration rates at our national meeting! These reduced registration fees are much less then the usual early bird one-day registration fee of $260 for AAPT members and $485 for non-members. 

We are offering this special registration fee because we want you to be a part of the rich conversations on physics teaching and education with colleagues from High Schools, other TYCs, and Colleges and Universities from around the world. AAPT benefits from the diverse experience and expertise of its members and we want to provide this opportunity for you to sample all that AAPT has to offer.

TYC Part-timer Registration Rate

If you are a part time TYC faculty member, who has never attended an AAPT meeting, we have a special registration rate available for you! This registration rate gives you access to great programing at our national meeting. Enjoy sessions that focus on a variety of topics from "Interdisciplinary Curriculum and Course", to "Introducing Computation into Introductory Physics Classes," to "Space Science in Introductory Courses." You have access to a variety of sessions, plenaries, and activities during all three days of the conference! The registration rate for part time TYC faculty is only $85.

TYC Day @ AAPT

AAPT has prepared a special Two-Year College Day on Sunday, January 13 for TYC faculty who have never attended a national AAPT Meeting. Registrants will be able to receive a discounted one day registration fee of $85. Programming that is of specific interest to TYC faculty is scheduled for Monday! This one day rate is available to any TYC faculty member.
