Read about the change on the College Board website

Tesla Museum - Shoreham  $1.37 million dollars was raised from 33,254 contributors to buy Tesla's Wardencliffe laboratory in Shoreham and construct a museum there.

Here's a CNN or NPR article about the internet cartoonist who made it happen. Here's a NY Times article about the purchase.


Back-to-school ads are already appearing on TV, so it won't be long!  Many LIPTA members have attended summer workshops, some dealing with the new AP-1 program.  If you did, come share what you learned with colleagues at an end-of-summer BBQ.  If you didn't, come pick the brains of those who did, especially if you want to hear more about AP-1.  There is no charge for current LIPTA members, BUT the usual BBQ protocols will be in play.  The address will be emailed to you after you RSVP on the form to the right.   Please RSVP so we have the correct amount of food.  We will have burgers and franks from the grill. Morningstar vegetarian burgers will also be available.  Please let us know on the RSVP form if you want a veggie burger so we have enough.  Picnic salads, soda, and desserts will all be available.  If you want to bring something to share with colleagues, feel free to do so.  We do not have a liquor license, so no alcohol will be served, but feel free to BYOB.

Please RSVP using this form:
