Story
Tagline
AAPT is the premier professional society established to advance physics education.
Introduction
AAPT is a professional membership association of scientists dedicated to enhancing the understanding and appreciation of physics through teaching.

AAPT was established in 1930 with the fundamental goal of ensuring the "dissemination of knowledge of physics, particularly by way of teaching." Paul E. Klopsteg, Ph.D., the Association's first president, led the effort to organize the first association dedicated to improving physics education. Today that vision is supported by more than 10,000 members in 30 countries around the world.
