Binders and Backdrops and CNSF oh my - Jun 16, 2004 at 12:00PM

Good morning everyone this is Matt Shanks
and I am a summer intern at AIP and MRSEC.
Recently myself and Heather Lunn have been
working together on preparing for a CNSF
event on The House Side of The Hill.  This
has meant meeting with the heads of programs
and other people associated with the various
programs to learn about said programs.  So
far we have been learning about DBIS
(Discoveries and Breakthroughs Inside
Science), PhysTEC (Physics Teacher Education
Coalition), comPADRE (Communities for
Physics and Astronomy Digital Resources in
Education), and SPINUP/TYC (Strategic
Programs for Innovations in Undergraduate
Physics at Two Year Colleges).  As you can
probably tell the amount of acronyms we have
been learning is astounding.  So besides
meetings Heather and I have put together a
couple binders, one for PhysTEC and one for
comPADRE (that's the binder part of the
title).  In addition to having binders we
will have and be familiar with a backdrop
that features the DBIS program (that's that
backdrop part of the title).  Lastly we will
be answering questions about all of these
programs at an event that the CNSF is
hosting (thus the CNSF part of the title).  
That's about it, there has been other work
on the SOCKs and we have been going to MRSEC
for seminars as well.  Anyway lunch is
around the corner so I'm going to be
wrapping this all up.  Oh and if you are
interested in any of the programs I listed
above their websites are:

DBIS - http://www.aip.org/dbis/
PhysTEC - http://www.phystec.org/
comPADRE - http://www.compadre.org/
SPINUP/TYC -
http://www.aapt.org/Projects/spinup-tyc.cfm

Well that's all for now folks, have a good
day.

-Matt-
