This is a proposal for a statewide recruitment grant to increase enrollment in physics programs in Oklahoma’s existing PhysTEC institutions. Recruitment efforts focus on junior and senior high school students and undergraduate STEM majors. The effort will market high school physics teaching as a viable career option among junior and senior high school students through promotional materials and site visits. Departments will be encouraged to promote high school science teaching as a rewarding and important career by supporting physics education speakers and disseminating PhysTEC program materials targeting undergraduate students. Grant funds will support bringing speakers to Oklahoma PhysTEC institutions to promote physics education careers among current undergraduate students. Faculty and undergraduate student travel to physics education events will also be supported. Oklahoma’s PhysTEC institutions include ECU, NWOSU, OSU and SWOSU.
