High school and college students are eligible to compete for a spot on the U.S. Physics Team. Teachers may nominate up to two students to take the preliminary exam; registration must be completed by 12/10/12. The top-scoring 300-400 students will be given a semifinal exam. Some of those taking the semifinal may be invited to join the team. Team members must agree to attend a training camp and be available to represent the U.S. at international competitions. The team is sponsored by the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), which also sponsors Physics Day at Six Flags America, Team American Rocketry Challenge, the International Science and Engineering Fair, the AAPT Physics Bowl, and the High School Physics Photo Competition.
