Show your SCAAPT spirit

We’re proud to announce that you can now purchase shirts, mugs, tote bags and more with our section’s logo.  Not only do these items make a great holiday gift for yourself (or others in your department), but they are also a great way of showing your SCAAPT pride when you attend the upcoming national meeting in San Diego.


To see the options and make a purchase, visit our on-line store.

All proceeds go to helping us improve physics instruction throughout the region with by supporting our meetings, workshops and other resources.


Resources for local teachers

The SCAAPT Physics Library is a collection of books, videos, and laboratory and demonstration equipment that is freely available to teachers of Southern California to borrow. Contact the librarian (James Lincoln) if you would like to check out items, donate equipment or get additional information.

Support for teacher collaborations

It’s never too late to apply for funding that can help you and a group of physics teachers (or retirees or engineers or whoever…) work on issues that are important to you and your students.  We are always accepting applications for the Local Area Networks (LANs) program.
