                                    Three Easy Steps to Participate…

            (The APS Education Office may be able to help you make a connection.)

          Establish the date(s) and time that you will visit the school

          Find out how many students will be participating and ask the teacher about any
           prior knowledge the kids may have about physiology.                                              Builds connections
                                                                                                          between scientists and
                                                                                                            their local schools

         Create your own activities that will engage students in physiology and form your team of
                                                                                                          partnerships between
          physiologists for the visit (graduate students, fellows, faculty etc).
                                       OR                                                                 biomedical researchers
        Use activities that have already been vetted by our own APS members.                               and K-12 teachers
         (www.apsarchive.org , key word search “PhUn”)

          Complete your PhUn Week Event Planner by October 1, 2012 in order to receive great            Involves more physiologists
            promotional items for the students and host teachers.                                             in outreach to the
