The Physics Classroom Photo Gallery

The Physics Classroom utilizes Flickr photo service to aid in teaching physics.
Dolores Gende's insight:

We physics teachers are so eager to make our course come alive. Our eagerness spurs a good deal of effort to relate the applicability of physics principles and laws to everyday occurrences. We love to show that video or photograph or movie clip that depicts some application of physics in a lively, unique and practical manner. Our wish is that every student walk away from our course with the confidence in and appreciation for the fact that physics matters - that it relates to and enriches our experiences in life. And being that our subject describes the physical world that our students will touch, see, feel, hear and move around in, it isn't that difficult of a task to convey this message that physics matters.

This section of The Physics Classroom website makes an effort to to assist teachers in bringing the physics matters message to our classrooms. The Physics Classroom combines with one of the web's most popular photo sharing sites (Flickr) to produce a toolbox for physics teachers.
