As is traditional every May column, I remind readers there are many summer physics teaching professional development opportunities, and research experience for teachers (RET) opportunities, kindly collected at the PhysTEC website clearinghouse. In particular this summer there will be over 55 Modeling physics, biology, chemistry, middle school, and physical science courses, and one astronomy course offered in 16+ states across the United States. Also consider attending the July 20-24 AAPT National Meeting in Provo UT/BYU and/or the Physics Education Research Conference (PERC) immediately following it. Have a great summer.

AAPT members receive access to The Physics Teacher and the American Journal of Physics as a member benefit. To learn more about this member benefit and becoming an AAPT member, visit the Joining AAPT page.
