ALPhA has a Laboratory Immersions Program. This program immerses laboratory instructors in an Advanced Laboratory experiment for several days. That way they will be able to teach that experiment at their home institutions - with confidence! Registration for 2019 open soon!
ALPhA has a Single Photon Detector Initiative. This program enables ALPhA members to purchase detectors for fundamental quantum mechanics experiments at a bulk rate. Ninth round should open soon so be sure to put your name on the waitlist.
