Welcome to the NYSS-AAPT website

Fall Meeting: Syracuse University: September 29-30. This will be the 5th Annual Joint Meeting of the NY-NJ-NE Sections of the AAPT.

(New York State Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers)

Dear Physics Colleagues,

We realize that we were quite inconsiderate in scheduling the upcoming Tri-Region AAPT meeting on Yom Kippur. Unfortunately, by the time we realized our error we were locked into the date by virtue of availability of space, agreement with presenters, etc. We meant no disrespect, and will work diligently to avoid such conflicts in the future.


The NYSS-AAPT Executive Committee

We hope that you will find this site useful and that you will consider becoming a member of the NYSS-AAPT community. Please contact any section officer or the webmaster with comments, suggestions, questions or requests. For those of you who are students, the NYSS-AAPT Executive Board is pleased to offer a scholarship for future high school physics teachers. For information see Programs and Grants.
