Trip 2008


Summer 2008 International Country Tour

After filling the veggie oil tank on the bus, we headed out for our 2008 summer tour. The journey will take us all the way from Tucson to the University of Alberta in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada for the 2008 meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers.

At stops along the way the Physics Factory made the media again in the Tucson Citizen, the Great Falls Tribune, and The Union.

We would like to thank our many sponsors without whom this trip would simply not be possible. Companies across the country are jumping on board to offer their assistance, from the lettering on our bus to the oil in our engine to the wheels and tires and hotels along the way, thank you all for your contribution to science education!
