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.
