Welcome to the Ontario Association of Physics Teachers

We are a charitable organization whose mission is to advance the teaching of physics in the secondary schools, colleges, and universities of Ontario.

  • an annual physics contest for grade 11 students

  • a newsletter featuring regular updates from our members covering demonstrations, pedagogy, book and movie reviews, and sample lessons

  • connecting teachers and building a community of learning through a host of events throughout the year

  • offering travel subsidies for teachers from Northern Ontario to attend our conference
