Stony Brook, NY
What is Teslamania?
- Teslamania is an exciting day of demonstrations in which physics teachers showcase their ideas, inventions and activities for improving physics education and student engagement.
- Both new and experienced teachers will learn innovative ways to improve their craft. Modeled after a similar competition held in Europe, Teslamania is organized by New York State Master Teachers from Long Island who are committed to spreading Teslamania throughout North America.
- Teslamania is much more than a physics competition—it is a day of sharing ideas, making and strengthening professional relationships, connecting with community and celebrating physics.
Who can participate?
- Teachers and scientists who specialize in introductory physics/physical science courses at the Secondary, College and University levels are invited to participate. Educators who attend or demonstrate will earn six hours of professional development credit.
- Students and Science Enthusiasts of all kinds are welcome! We encourage students and spectators to attend or present.
