Modeling Workshops Summer 2013: July 22 - Aug 9
Workshop RESERVATION is opened
Our Summer Workshops in Physics - Mechanics, Chemistry, & Physics - Electricity & Magnetism are now accepting reservations. We have assembled a real all-star team of workshop leaders: Craig Buszka & Seth Guinals-Kupperman (Mechanics), Larry Dukerich and Donghong Sun (Chemistry), and Michael Crofton and Mark Schober (E&M).
The workshops run for 3 weeks, July 22 to Aug 9. Cost is $450. We are hopeful that we will receive support soon from the new Science Modeling Institute, and if we do we will reduce the fee, probably to $300
To reserve a spot, go to Eventbrite. Our workshops turn up in a search for "PhysicsTeachersNYC" on Eventbrite.
