Upcoming Events

  • PICUP/OPTYCs Summer 2024 Virtual Workshop

    This workshop is a very basic primer on integrating computation into introductory courses with easy-to-use, readily available computational tools. No programming experience whatsoever is necessary to participate.
    Dates: July 30, 2024-August 1, 2024
    Location: Virtual

    If you have little or no prior experience with integrating computation into an introductory course, and you would like help finding out how to get started, we encourage you to attend! Even if you have never before considered the possibility of inserting a computational exercise into an introductory course, this workshop is for you!
  • Greater Chicagoland PICUP Workshop 2024

    Integrating Computation into Physics Courses
    Date: September 21, 2024
    Location: Lewis University

    Any physics educators from around the Chicagoland area (or anywhere else if you're willing to travel!) that want to energize their physics courses should attend! The scope of this workshop is appropriate for physics teachers from high schools, 2-year colleges, and 4-year colleges and universities. The workshop will include demonstrations and discussions about various aspects of integrating computational activities into physics courses at all levels from introductory to advanced.  

    Registration will open on June 1, 2024!
