What/Who is "V.I.P.?"

"V-I-P" stands for the Virginia Instructors of Physics -and physical science. VIP is a less than non-profit organization sponsored by the University of Virginia. It is an organization for all levels of physics and physical science education in the state of Virginia. Its purpose is to end the isolation felt by so many high school physics and physical science teachers. (As many physics teachers are the only ones in their county.) This is done through the University of Virginia’s sponsorship of an annual meeting, an e-mail listserv a printed newsletter that comes once a year and support for the VAST through the sessions we present. Membership is free to all educators teaching in the state of Virginia.

Virginia Educators can join VIP for free.
