About the NCS-AAPT

The North Carolina Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers is open to all physics teachers and those interested in the teaching of physics, especially in the state of North Carolina. We hope that you will join the NCS-AAPT so that we will see you at the next meeting!

The objectives of the Association are to advance the teaching of physics, to further the appreciation of the role of physics in our culture, and to enhance effective communication among those concerned with the teaching of physics at all levels.

Friday evening public lecture by Dr. Katie Mack, NCSU, 7:30 pm

"Dr Katie Mack is a theoretical astrophysicist who studies a range of questions in cosmology, the study of the universe from beginning to end. She received her undergraduate degree at Caltech and PhD from Princeton before going on to postdoctoral fellowships at Cambridge University and Melbourne University. Katie currently holds the position of Assistant Professor of Physics at North Carolina State University, where she is also a member of the Leadership in Public Science Cluster. Throughout her career she has researched dark matter, the early universe, galaxy formation, black holes, cosmic strings, and the ultimate fate of the cosmos. Alongside her academic work, she is an active science communicator and has been written for a number of popular publications such as Scientific American, Slate, Sky & Telescope, and Cosmos Magazine, where she is a columnist. Next year, look for her book about the end of the Universe, to be published by Scribner. You can find her on Twitter as @AstroKatie."
