Physics to Go is presented by the American Physical Society (APS) and features a collection of reviewed websites and resources for teaching and learning about physics.
The site is well organized and users can find what they want by browsing the collections, searching the database by content topic, resource type and grade level or browsing the features on the main page and their archives.

This is a rich resource for teachers and students who are teaching and learning about physics. Students can use the resources at this site to learn about physics on their own or get help with homework assignments through games, webcasts, and online exhibits and activities. Topics include astronomy, electricity and magnetism, fluids, general physics, heat, light, modern physics, motion, forces and energy, quantum physics and waves, and pendula. By registering for free and signing in, users can save their personal collection, comment on the resources, and suggest resources for addition to the database. Teachers will also find lots of information and resources for planning lessons and supplementing the curriculum. The Physics on the Road section lists demonstration shows that bring the content to you, depending of course on your location.
