Physical Science Study Committee
The Physical Science Study Committee was inaugurated at MIT in 1956 with the objective to review introductory physics education and designing and monitoring improvements. It produced a major new physics textbooks, instructional movies and classroom laboratory materials, that were used by high schools around the world during the 1960s and 1970s.
