Event description

The Texas Physics Consortium will be hosting the 2018 Joint Spring Meeting of the Texas Sections of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), American Physical Society (APS), and Zone 13 of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) Thursday March 22 through Saturday March 24 on the Stephenville campus of Tarleton State University.

Stephenville, a town of just over 15,000 people, in rural Erath County is approximately 70 miles Southwest of Fort Worth. The town has a long western heritage with numerous current and former World Champion Rodeo stars living in the community. Due to its historical site along several major cattle drives, the town is connected by multiple State Highways making it easily accessible by car.

There is an SPS Social for students on Thursday, March 22 at 7:00 pm. 

There will also be an SPS Physics Demonstration Outreach Event on Friday, March 23. All Zone 13 SPS chapters are invited to bring their best demonstrations. Roughly 200 k-12 students from the surrounding areas are expected to attend. The event will be hosted in the pedestrian mall area on Rudder Way outside the Tarleton science building. 

As with other recent Texas section Meetings, online registration and abstract submission for the meeting will be handled through the APS website.
