Teslamania 2019


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.
