WHO WE ARE

Keeping Physics Fun!

The Oregon Chapter of the American Association of Physics Teachers (ORAAPT) is a community of physics educators from around the state. We are affiliated with the national organization American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). We bring educators together to share best practices in teaching, host workshops, share demonstrations, and preview the latest in laboratory equipment. What makes us unique is a passion for keeping physics fun and engaging for all students.

UPCOMING MEETINGS

We're headed south for the winter. Our spring meeting will be in Corvallis at Oregon State. We hope to have plenty of member-contributed talks so we can find out what's new in teaching right here in Oregon!

TEACHING IN THE TIME OF COVID-19

As many schools are shutting down for days, weeks, or possibly the rest of the term, teachers are being asked to push content online. We faced a dilemma as we plan our spring meeting but ultimately decided to offer both an in-person and online experience. We will be discussing creative delivery methods of content in the era of COVID-19.

INVOLVEMENT IN AAPT

Our new section rep for the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) is Evan Thatcher. Evan attended the winter national meeting in January. We are looking forward to hosting the next winter meeting in Portland in 2021.
