AAPT Photo Contest

The 2015 AAPT Photo Contest, sponsored by Vernier, was held at the summer meeting of the American Association of Physics Teachers in College Park, Maryland. Students submitted photo prints that demonstrated physics concepts, along with essays explaining the physics concepts. AAPT members voted on the entries. Each year we are impressed by the creativity of the students who enter this contest. The eye-drawing composition of many of the images reminds us that art has both an important role in our lives and a valuable connection to science.
