About Us

Welcome to the Florida section of AAPT. We're a professional organization of teachers of physics and physical science from K12 to post-secondary around Florida. We strive to advance the teaching of physics, further the appreciation of the role of physics in our culture, and enhance effective communication among those concerned with the teaching of physics at all levels. Drop us a line at AAPTFlorida@gmail.com. Note: area sections of AAPT are separate organizations from the national American Association of Physics Teachers.
