The Nucleus is a comPADRE collection designed specifically to serve as an informational touchpoint and online community for undergraduate physics and astronomy students. Undergraduates are encouraged to register and participate in the growth of the site - the more visitors we have coming through and providing thoughts, opinions, and further content, the more valuable this site will become!

Users of the Nucleus are encouraged to actively participate. They may vote in polls, share thoughts, suggest materials for the editor to include in the collection, and build personal collections of materials. Although anyone may use the database, participation requires the creation of a user account so that contributions can be connected to the user. Account creation is free and requires only a name and email address.

The Nucleus website provided by the American Association of Physics Teachers in conjunction with the Society for Physics Students. It is supported, in part, by the National Science Foundation and the American Physical Society Campaign for Physics. Opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of the AAPT, APS, or the NSF.
