About Physics To Go

Physics to Go is a collection of websites where you can learn physics on your own, through games, webcasts, and online articles, exhibits, and activities. To find the resources you want, you can browse the collection and search our database by content topic, resource type, and grade level. Alternately, you can browse the archives for back issues (you can reach the archives with the navigation button at the top left of the homepage).

Physics to Go is produced by the American Physical Society (APS). It is a part of comPADRE, the online collection of resources in physics and astronomy education, which itself is a part of the National Science Foundation-funded National Science Digital Library (NSDL).

From May, 2006 to August, 2010, Physics to Go was produced at the American Physical Society (APS), and new issues appeared every other week. From August, 2010 on, new issues have appeared once a month, and remain on the homepage for the first two weeks of the month. Thereafter, past issues, chosen randomly, appear on the homepage for four days each.

We encourage your involvement in Physics to Go. Once you have registered and signed in, which requires only a username and password, you can build a personal collection, share your comments about resources already in the comPADRE collection, and suggest resources for us to add. You can contact the Physics to Go staff using either the feedback form or through the email
