The joint meeting of the Texas Section of the American Physical Society (TSAPS), the Texas Section of the American Association of Physics Teachers (TSAAPT) and Zone 13 of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) brings together a diverse group of researchers, educators and students from across Texas.
Our program includes invited speakers from coast to coast, covering a wide range of physics topics. Concluding the meeting will be an amazing celestial event - an annular solar eclipse!
