Program Data

The project collects data on the number of PhysTEC Graduates and PhysTEC Future Teachers; these PhysTEC terms are defined here. The project also collects data on physics pedagogy courses, early teaching experiences, and enrollment in K-8 physical science courses for future elementary school teachers.

Definition of a Future Teacher at West Virginia University: 

A PhysTEC future teacher is a physics major, or a student in a related field (chemistry, mathematics or engineering) who is doing the equivalent of a physics teaching minor.

Commentary on Future Physics Teachers data: 

This number is very difficult to estimate because the program is so new.
