I gave a talk and participated in a teacher workshop at UNL a couple of years ago and had a great time; it’s a nice town and a good group of folks there. If you’re a female physics major (or know one you should tell) this looks like a great opportunity to meet others. Registration is open now and the meeting starts October 30.
And if you don’t think this kind of thing is important, I urge you to read this wonderful post over at Cocktail Party Physics. Yes, this kind of thing is important.
