Today was a great day for physics in New England!   We had students from six school attend the 28th annual New England Physics Olympics!!!

We tried something new this year.  All of the participating teams took the actual AAPT Physics Bowl exam as one of the events.  So we had six schools (several of whom had never participated in the Physics Bowl before) taking the exam at the same time!  I will be mailing in the scantron sheets this week.  Many thanks to AAPT-New England for the grant to make this possible.

Another big thank-you to all of the Physics major undergraduates from Boston University who helped out as judges at this event.  Another win-win as we had young physics majors (and future AAPT members) working with aspiring physics students!
