In July 2020, Harvard University held a National Science Foundation (NSF) funded online workshop titled 'Building a Network to Support and Improve High-School Physics Education' to bring together a group of secondary school physics educators, administrators and methodology experts to discuss the current state of high school physics teaching and explore ways to improve as well as address how to build capacity. The international PoLS-T Network was begun as a resource to support high school physics teaching and teachers and is a result of that initial Summer workshop. PoLS-T is closely collaborating with the NSF-funded Physics of Living Systems Student Research Network (SRN) that is a trans-institutional community-based network of graduate students and graduate student educators all working on the physics of living systems.
The PoLS-T Network is funded by the National Science Foundation and is a part of NSF's Physics of Living Systems program (PoLS).
