WAPT is a section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT). The goal of the WAPT is to advance and diffuse the knowledge of physics, especially as it pertains to the teaching of physics.
We welcome to the WAPT anyone interested in physics and related disciplines, whether or not they teach courses in these disciplines.
