2006 AAPT/Lexmark High School Photo Contest
This year, AAPT partnered with Lexmark International, Inc., to present the High School Physics Photo Contest. Physics students from around the world were challenged to submit a photo illustrating a physics concept. The students were required to take the photo themselves and to write a summary of the physics occurring in the photo. The 17 winning photos in the showcase below were judged by AAPT members to be the best of 100 finalists. The winners were chosen in July at the 2006 AAPT Summer Meeting in Syracuse, NY.
Prize information can be found here.
Coming soon: an expanded showcase featuring the remaining 83 entries (AAPT members only). Also coming soon, information about the 2007 contest.
