Directions and Location of Spring 2014 meeting

Dear NES-AAPT Participants,
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Salem State University for the NES-AAPT Spring Meeting on March 14 and 15.
We will meet in the Ellison Campus Center (2nd floor) on Friday evening, and in Meier Hall (4th floor) on Saturday. These buildings are both on North Campus.
Directions to North Campus, which is adjacent to the intersection of Lafayette Street and Loring Avenue in Salem, are available on the SSU website:
A campus map is available at:
North Campus is on the right side of the map. Ellison Campus Center is building #10, and Meier Hall is building #4.  General parking is available in the Peabody Lot, which is south-most of the two parking lots on North Campus.  There will be parking directional signs on the sidewalk starting at the  Lafayette Street entrance to campus (near the star on the map).  Please note: College Drive is a one-way street.
For persons requiring handicap parking, there are two spaces on Lafayette Street near Meier Hall and there are two spaces in the small lot right near Ellison Campus Center.
Our events begin at 5 pm on Friday with registration and a poster session, followed by demonstrations, dinner and our speaker, Richard Larson, from the MIT Blossom project.
Weather permitting, the North Shore Amateur Astronomy Club will open the Collins Observatory for us around 8:30 pm. If you plan to visit the observatory, they recommend dressing warmly.
On Saturday, we have a full day beginning with breakfast at 7:30 am near the Slater Lecture Hall (Room MH 444) in Meier Hall.  In addition to six contributed papers, Ethan Danahy from TuftsCenter for Engineering Education and Outreach and Manher Jariwala from the BU Studio Physics project will be making presentations. David Sturm from U. Maine and Vacek Miglus from Wesleyan are planing a demonstration session, and Judy Donnelly from Three Rivers Community College will present a Workshop on Problem Based Learning in the afternoon.
