In addition to the regular program, there will be a professional development workshop for women physicists, a high school teachers’ day, a students lunch with the experts, and the presentation of several APS prizes and awards in a special ceremonial session. A public lecture, on the physics of NASCAR, will be given by Diandra Leslie-Pelecky of the University of Nebraska.
