Adopt-a-Physicist is the web site for a bi-annual mentoring activity involving physicists and high school classes. Each class adopts a professional physicist and asks questions about the activities, careers, and background of scientists and those with science educations. Communications are online and teachers and scientists are encouraged to participate. This is a collaboration between the Society of Physics Students and ComPADRE.
