Department of Physics and Astronomy

The UNC-BEST program invites North Carolina physics (and other) teachers to join us for a symposium on current advances in physics, astronomy, and the teaching of these subjects in secondary schools. The symposium will feature talks by leaders in the field about astronomy and physics research, the application of physics in a variety of contexts, and physics and astronomy pedagogy. There will also be hands-on activities and tours of research labs in the UNC-CH Physics & Astronomy Department.
You will have the opportunity to share ideas and learn from other teachers from across North Carolina in an informal atmosphere. Those who attend the entire symposium will be eligible to receive Continuing Education Unit credits.
The program for the symposium still in preparation, but information will be added to this page as it becomes available.
The symposium will take place on Saturday 13 October at the Department of Physics and Astronomy on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. and the activities will end at 5:00 p.m. The registration fee of $15 (payable in advance or at the start of the symposium) covers all symposium materials as well as lunch.This symposium is brought to you by a grant from the North Carolina Space Grant K-12 Professional Development program.
We look forward to seeing you at the symposium!
