Physics Songs

Main Project Information
Goal Help professor collect all songs about physics.
Task Pick your concept, write your song, or add one to the collection
Where Global, anywhere on the planet
Description

Physics Songs aims to be the world's premier website devoted to collecting and organizing all songs about physics. It is managed by Walter F. Smith, Professor of Physics at Haverford College.

Songs about physics can help students to remember critical concepts and formulas, but perhaps more importantly they communicate the lesson that physics can be fun. They certainly help to establish an informal classroom atmosphere, in which even shy students are willing to ask questions.

The songs may also activate a different part of the students' brains.

How to Join

Pick your concept, write your song, and add it to the site's collection. Or, help with creating a web page for the dozens of songs we have waiting to be posted. (This could include writing a few sentences about the physics in the song, finding related websites to link to, finding appropriate images to use for the background, and/or designing the whole web page for the song.) If you'd like to help in this way, we'll assign you a song to work on! Contact: wsmith@haverford.edu
