Community outreach


Northern Kentucky Physics Teachers Alliance

The NKPTA provides peer support for local physics teachers and provides a formal connection between local high school and college teachers.

Meetings typically take place three to four times during the academic year. We also hold half day workshops during the school year, and a longer workshop during the summer.

For more information and to subscribe to the list serve contact Dr. Filaseta.
