129th AAPT National Meeting , Sacramento, CA

Each year, AAPT organizes a High School Physics Photo Contest. Physics students around the country are challenged to submit a photo illustrating a physics concept. The students are required to take the photo themselves and include a written summary of the physics occurring in the photo. The following photos were judged at the 129th AAPT National Meeting in Sacramento, CA.

Look for information about next year's contest in the Spring Announcer and online: http://www.aapt.org/Contests/photocontest.cfm.
