The AAPT eMentoring Program

What is it?

The AAPT eMentoring program is designed to connect high school physics educators who desire additional guidance with experienced high school physics educators*—FREE of charge. Based on each mentee's profile, the program will connect them with a qualified mentor who fits the needs of that mentee. The mentee and mentor can then begin communicating through email, voice chat, telephone, or in some cases face-to-face. All participants will have an opportunity to grow professionally and connect with colleagues at a regional and national level*.
