AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF PHYSICS TEACHERS INC Overview
Programs: The United States Physics Team Program is a physics community initiative organized by AAPT and funded by member societies of the American Institute of Physics and other generous donors. This program encourages excellence in physics education while rewarding outstanding physic students. High school students compete each year to represent the United States at the International Physics Olympiad Competition providing once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for students to enhance their physics knowledge as well as their creativity, leadership, and commitment to a goal.
The Association has identified four critical issues that will guide our future activities:
- Increase AAPT''s outreach to and impact on physics teachers
- Increase the diversity and numbers of physics teachers and students
- Improve the pedagogical skills and physics knowledge of teachers at all levels
- Increase our understanding of physics learning and of ways to improve teaching effectiveness
Thetwenty-first century will provide the greatest opportunities andchallenges for us as we take an active role in shaping the future. Oursuccess will depend on the commitment, dedication, and continued inputof our members and the physics education community. Join us in thisjourney to enhance the quality and effectiveness of physics educationat all levels.
