The CAP is proud to announce a new Award aimed to recognize excellence in teaching physics at a canadian high school or CEGEP.
The awards is intended to recognize excellence in teaching physics in Canadian high schools or CEGEPs and to further encourage and promote physics at this level in Canada. The award is sponsored nationally by the CAP, TRIUMF, Merlan Scientific, Perimeter Institute, Nelson Education, and Vernier, and at a regional level by the BC Innovation Council.
The award honours physics teachers in Canadian high schools or CEGEPs who possess an exceptional ability to communicate their knowledge and understanding, and can motivate their students to high academic achievement in physics. The award will include an Educational Grant administered by the CAP that can be used for furthering education in physics, such as support for the recipient to attend conferences on teaching or on physics, or to purchase computer software, equipment, or books.
Awards will be given annually in each of five regions in Canada:
