For many years the Physics Department has maintained connections with local AP HS physics teachers. This has been through personal connections of some faculty (notably Dr. Manfred Bucher, Dr. Ray Hall and Dr. Amir Huda) with local AP HS teachers. We have also had AP HS teachers teach college level physics courses in their schools through the UniTrack program.  Dr. Bucher plans to coordinate regular meetings with local HS physics teachers to enhance the conceptual physics classes and raise awareness about misconceptions.

Recently, our Physics Pedagogy and Outreach course has been instrumental in providing critical early teaching experiences for both secondary and elementary teachers.

Graduates from California State University, Fresno have been named PhysTEC Local Teacher of the Year in 2019 and 2020; their Local Teacher of the Year was selected as the National Teacher of the Year in 2020.
