APS Gets Major NSF Funding for Education

As APS News was going to press, it was learned that the APS, together with its partners the American Association of Physics Teachers and the American Institute of Physics, had just received full funding of a National Science Foundation grant for the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) to improve the science preparation of future teachers.

The award totals $5,765,151 over five years. Full details on the grant and the PhysTEC program will appear in next month's APS News.

APS encourages the redistribution of the materials included in this newspaper provided that attribution to the source is noted and the materials are not truncated or changed.
