John Belcher (left photo) of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, was cited: For developing 3D electromagnetic field visualization tools and for the creation and large-scale implementation of a studio-based, active learning version of introductory physics, TEAL. Stephen C. McGuire (right photo) of Southern University and A&M College, was cited: For his leadership in exploring new ways for research physicists, traditional educators and museum professionals to work together to engage students and the public, particularly under-represented groups, in the excitement of physics.


We congratulate the new Fellows and thank them for their contributions to Physics Education.
