Forum on Education

The Forum on Education (FEd), established in 1992, exists to involve its members in activities related to physics education, at all educational stages, from elementary to grad school and life-long learning. APS members who wish to support the work of the forum can join the Forum now. More information can be found in the FEd Flyer or in the Forum Bylaws.

The FEd is one of a number of educationally-oriented organizations and activities sponsored by the APS. The APS education page provides an overview and links to the other programs.
