American Association of Physics Teachers

AAPT was established in 1930 with the fundamental goal of ensuring the “dissemination of knowledge of physics, particularly by way of teaching.” Founders, Homer L. Dodge, Paul E. Klopsteg and William S. Webb led the effort to organize the first association dedicated to improving physics education. Today that vision is supported by members around the world.
