• Science Beyond Borders: Physics for All is 2013 SPS theme

SPS has more than 700 chapters at colleges and universities across the United States. Each chapter is very individualized by the interests of its members, its physics & astronomy departments, the campus atmosphere, and the geographical setting.

The SPS is organized geographically in 18 zones. Each zone elects a Zone Councilor and Associate Zone Councilor to the SPS National Council. SPS encourages each zone to host at least one zone meeting each academic year.
