The Tri-State Physics Teacher group was originally formed in 1984. Ed Sunderhaus (Cincinnati Technical College at the time) and Terry Toepker (Xavier University) functioned as both leaders and support staff. The Tri-State Physics Teachers is an informal group of over 75 local high school physics and physical science teachers as well as college faculty from several Cincinnati universities. The group meets quarterly to share ideas, resources, and projects and demonstrations. The meetings are informal ... part information about local opportunities and part sharing of ideas and favorite labs/demos. Teachers take turns hosting each meeting. We try to have meetings in other physics teachers' classrooms to allow us to experience each other's teaching environments.
