Giving to Physics Education Through AAPT
AAPT is the premier global professional society established to advance the greater good through physics education.
From environmental disasters such as the Deep Water Horizon oil spill and the Japan earthquake/tsunami through technology that supports accurate predictions of devastating storms, physics knowledge supports smart decisions and saves lives.
There has never been a time when physics education was more critical. With new national core standards being developed, this is our moment to ensure that the elemental facts about the relationships and systems supporting life in our city, on our globe, and in our universe are understood and used as decisions and policies that impact the future are implemented.
This critical role depends on well trained physics educators who teach and inspire students in physical sciences from kindergarten through Ph.D. programs. Your support of AAPT strengthens the initial training and ongoing professional development of programs for physics teachers around the world.
Our Endowment and Annual funds help support physics educators and students, recognize excellence, expand outreach activities, and foster innovative professional development programs for school teachers, college faculty, teaching assistants, and others. Read more.

Harvey S. Leff, California Polytec (Retired): AAPT has been, and continues to be, an important part of my life and career. It has helped me improve my teaching and network with other physics teachers. It provides vehicles (AJP and TPT) for keeping up to date on the new ideas of others and publishing my own work.
Hundreds of members and friends of AAPT have invested in programs, scholarships, and initiatives designed to support physics education. They did so by giving to AAPT. The beneficiaries of these efforts and opportunities join AAPT in offering their deepest gratitude to AAPT's benefactors.
