ToPPS @ NWOSU
PTRA / AAPT Professional Development @ NWOSU
Northwestern Oklahoma State University is pleased to offer the summer science institute “ToPPS” for area Teachers of Physics and Physical science. This 5-day institute is the first of its kind for the state of Oklahoma. Leaders known as Physics Teaching Resource Agents (PTRAs) trained at the national level by the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) will be leading the charge as 34 teachers from Oklahoma attend for a “refresher” in force and motion.
This page has been set up to document the institute and then serve as a forum for the dialogue to continue once the on-campus institute ends. We hope to post pictures and videos of teachers in action as they explore new and old ways of making physics and physical science more accessible to their students. Join in on the conversation!
