Handbook of Resources for Physics Departments.
Llano, Margaret T.; Zahalka, Leona
Included is information about science organizations which may be of interest to science teachers. The organizations are grouped into five categories: professional and scientific organizations, educational organizations, U.S. government and quasi-governmental agencies, foundations, and other organizations. Included for each organization are name, address and telephone number, organization acronym, date founded, name and title of executive officer, organization purpose, scope (regional, national, etc.), areas of interest, special staff, activities or programs, meetings and publications. No attempt has been made to thoroughly describe the range of programs, and only those activities which relate to the needs of a physics department are included. The first appendix is a listing of the organizations according to areas of interests, and the remaining nine appendices are concerned with research support, colleges and universities offering a physics major, College Science Commissions, physics curricular projects, academies of science, regional educational laboratories, and acronyms.
