Institutes, Workshops, and Camps
Due to COVID, the following sessions will be held online. Registration is required in order to mail any resources that would enhance your participation in the session. Participants will be provided with worksheets that accompany the session. Each session is $15 or attend both sessions for the reduced price of $25. Participants must register at least a week before the sessions in order to receive the accompanying materials.
November 14 and December 12
10 - 11AM Eastern
A two part series on wave particle duality and how it relates to quantum. Wave -Particle Duality is a central tenet of modern physics but is often misrepresented and is rarely connected to quantum concepts. Come join us for a 2 part workshop exploring this topic with materials tailored for virtual delivery. What does it mean that light is both a wave and a particle? How do we know that? Do scientists really know what is going on with light!!
Part 1 - November 14
How do we know Wave Particle Duality Exists? This series of activities asks the learner to predict expected experimental results according to both models and then form a model based on the actual results.
Part 2 - December 12
More Evidence about Wave Particle Duality This series of activities goes beyond the standard double slit experiment to show interferometer and coincidence counting applications of wave-particle duality.
Wave Particle Duality (Parts 1 and 2)
Each session is approximately 1 hour in length
Cost for each session is $15 and will include shipment of materials being used in the session and a link to the appendix (handout).
Registration must be paid at least a week before the session to receive the materials in time for the session. Registration for both sessions must be completed in advanced of session 1. If you are a TSAAPT member, the November session is free and the December session is $10.
If you are a member of TSAAPT or a PTRA and attending the November session please send an email to Karen Matsler in order to receive the link for the session (email@example.com)

STEM Quantum Camps
Due to COVID 19, the student quantum camps are being moved to summer 2021. More information will be coming as soon as the location and topics are determined. Check back later.
