Welcome to PhysTEC!

UCF Physics is a member of the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC), a national program to increase the number of highly-qualified high school physics teachers. Physics is #1 critical teacher-shortage area in Florida and throughout much of the country. UCF is helping to solve that through our use of undergraduate Learning Assistants, a Physics B.A. degree with a focus in Education, offering courses on Physics pedagogy, and a veteran high school teacher on staff as a full-time Teacher-in-Residence.
