ABOUT AAPT & SCAAPT

The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) is a national organization whose mission is to enhance the understanding and appreciation of physics through teaching.

The Southern California Section (SCAAPT) supports the mission of the AAPT via our biannual meetings and our email list. The SCAAPT welcomes the participation of anyone interested in physics and physics teaching, but especially Southern California area high school and college physics teachers. The activities of the SCAAPT are supported solely through the dues and volunteer work of its members. We are not supported financially by the national organization.

We hope you will join us formally, but we encourage you to get to know us by joining our email list and attending our meetings.
