Click Here For a Registration Form

A special day has been prepared on Monday, July 18 for high school physics teachers that have never attended a national AAPT Meeting. Qualified teachers will receive a discounted registration fee of $85This fee is much less than the usual early bird one-day registration fee of $245 for AAPT members and $460 for non-members. We are offering this special registration fee, because we want to encourage you to sample what AAPT has to offer high school physics teachers. We are confident that once you see what AAPT has to offer, you will become an active AAPT member.
