About the NCS-AAPT

The North Carolina Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers is open to all physics teachers and those interested in the teaching of physics, especially in the state of North Carolina. 

We hope that you will join the NCS-AAPT so that we will see you at the next meeting!

The objectives of the Association are to advance the teaching of physics, to further the appreciation of the role of physics in our culture, and to enhance effective communication among those concerned with the teaching of physics at all levels.
