STEP UP participants in a classroom
STEP UP is a national community of physics teachers, researchers, and professional societies. We design high school physics lessons to empower teachers, create cultural change, and inspire young women to pursue physics in college.


STEP UP Ambassadors are high school physics teachers or others involved in physics education that inspire others to effectively reduce barriers for women in physics 

Student outreach

Help STEP UP recruit teachers to be a part of the movement. You can make a difference!

About the program

Drawing on research evidence, STEP UP is mobilizing thousands of high school physics teachers to reduce barriers and inspire young women to pursue physics degrees in college. Our lesson materials are research-driven and will help shift deep-seated cultural views about who does physics.
