On August 3, 2007, the project held the first regional PhysTEC conference in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, for institutions in University of North Carolina system. The conference was inspired by the UNC system President Erskine Bowles’ call to action on science teacher preparation. Faculty from 14 out of 16 institutions in the UNC system attended presentations by Ted Hodapp of APS, Eugenia Etkina of Rutgers University, Valerie Otero of Colorado, Paul Hickman of the PhysTEC project, and Jill Marshall of the University of Texas at Austin. Participants then spent the last two hours of the meeting developing action plans to implement at their schools.
