The PhysTEC Teacher of the Year program aims to recognize outstanding high school physics teachers who are graduates from PhysTEC institutions. The PhysTEC Teacher of the Year receives all-expenses-paid trips to the AAPT national meeting, the PhysTEC conference, and a $1,000 classroom materials grant. Applications open February 1.
This $2,000, renewable scholarship is for high school seniors or undergraduate students planning a career in high school physics teaching.
These grants provide AAPT members with a small amount of funds ($100 to $500) to pursue innovative projects in the classroom.
This award is for excellence in K-12 classroom teaching. Winners receive a financial award, expenses paid to attend a national AAPT conference, and the opportunity to give an address at the conference.
