Welcome to the Chesapeake Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (CSAAPT). We are a regional organization consisting of Delaware, the DC area, Virginia and Maryland, and are part of the national AAPT. Our goal from our constitution is “…the advancement of the teaching of physics, the professional advancement of the teachers of physics at all levels, and the furtherance of the appreciation of the role of physics in our culture.”

To further these goals we have meetings twice a year at various locations throughout the Section. Our meetings are centered around educational practices and how to better promote physics education and research. Our members are from high schools and universities, both small and large, and are all striving to become the best physics teachers we can possibly be. We work to network within the physics community spanned by our section’s boundaries as well as outside of those boundaries.

If you have questions about our organization, meetings or anything else please do not hesitate to contact any of our officers.

Joining the Chesapeake Section of the AAPT is easy–all you have to do is let us know you’d like to join. Our yearly dues are $15, and you can pay either at the meetings or by snail mail to our Treasurer. Note: First-year dues are waived for K-12 educators!

To add your name to the CS-AAPT email list, please email our section’s Communication liaison. Even if you’re not a member, we will be glad to add your name to our email list.
