Physics of Life Experience (POLE) for Teachers 2018

The CPLC will host an 4-day workshop series entitled the Physics of Life Experience for Teachers 2018. Taking place from July 2nd, July 3rd, July 5th, and July 6th, our goal is to provide an environment for local high school science teachers to learn about the latest research within the CPLC, network with fellow teachers, and work together with graduate students and postdoctoral researchers to develop lessons that are applicable to their classrooms.

All participants will receive amenities including a stipend, CPDUs, mileage reimbursment, and meals for participation in this workshop series. The CPLC will also provide funds for classroom materials, and help from our researchers to support lesson implementation in the classroom. Additional funds are available to support communication of lessons developed during this program at national or regional meetings (e.g. ISTA, NSTA, AAPT, or others).
