City College of New York has an active effort in Physics Education. This effort includes:

  • Physics Education Research: Systematic studies on how students learn science in general and physics in particular.
  • Innovative Instruction: Student-centered instructional strategies with documented effectiveness.
  • Teacher Education: Programs for in-service and pre-service science teachers ranging from elementary shool to high school.
  • Community Outreach: Educational and fun interactive physics shows for pre-college classes at all levels, both at CCNY and at area schools.
Opportunities ranging from a few hours to full time are available to interested undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs in physics, and pre-college science teachers.
