Lexmark International, Inc. and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) today announced the winners of the annual AAPT/Lexmark High School Photo Contest. Through this partnership, Lexmark and the AAPT are enhancing the educational experience of students by encouraging them to see the wonders of math and sciences in their daily lives. As a developer of industry-leading laser and inkjet printing technology, Lexmark employs some of the world's finest engineers. Many of those engineers were influenced early on by a love of math and science, so Lexmark has a special interest in promoting education, especially in those areas. This contest allows Lexmark to encourage the study of math and science while also supporting students and teachers across the world.

"This contest strengthens the students' understanding of physics by challenging them to look at everyday occurrences in a new way. We hope the contest will spark a lifetime interest in learning about the way things work and possibly even inspire a few future engineers," said Tim Fitzpatrick, vice president, corporate communications, Lexmark.

High school students - Photo & Physics behind the photo
The AAPT/Lexmark High School Photo Contest challenges high school students across the world to submit a photo illustrating an interesting physics concept. The students are required to take the photo themselves and include a written summary of the physics behind the photo. Students were able to submit in one of two categories: natural, which includes any situation that the student witnessed, or contrived, which involves any situation where objects were manipulated to produce the phenomena photographed. The photos were judged on quality and the accuracy of the physics in the accompanying explanation.

"This contest provides students with a challenging opportunity to apply physics concepts to everyday phenomena while using photography skills. Our partnership with Lexmark has enabled us to reach a larger audience and engage even more students in the math and sciences, not only in the classroom, but in every aspect of daily life," said Bernard V. Khoury, AAPT executive officer.
