American Association of Physics Teachers 2020 Summer Meeting Goes Digital

“We look forward to hosting the AAPT Virtual 2020 Summer Meeting on Underline, and are honored to partner with the dedicated and values-driven educators at AAPT,” said Alex Lazinica, CEO of Underline Science.

Underline Science will produce and host the American Association of Physics Teachers (APPT) 2020 Summer Meeting and Physics Education Research Conference (PERC) from Sunday, July 19 to Thursday, July 23, on Underline Science (http://www.underline.io), the world’s first live streaming and digital library platform for cutting-edge conference lectures, research and discussions. The AAPT Summer Meeting, which brings together physics educators from around the globe, partnered with Underline after conference chairs determined the in-person meeting originally scheduled to be in Grand Rapids, Michigan would not be possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The AAPT® Virtual Summer Meeting and PERC will feature a full program with plenary speakers, sessions, workshops and many special activities. The meetings provide physics educators from around the world the opportunity to develop and strengthen professional connections, as well as learn about the latest in physics theory, research methodology and education from leaders in the field.
