Arbor Scientific has been the leader in finding cool science tools for the past 30 years that make understanding scientific principles easy, fun and exciting for today’s students. “We started this contest as way to enable science lovers like us to easily share our smartphone slow-mo videos that can remarkably demonstrate the physics of so many complex principles. Ideally we want #SlowMoPhysics to become a new free resource available to science teachers to help teach physics in a cool way” says Andrea Kelly, Marketing Manager of Arbor Scientific.

This new slow-motion competition seeks videos from teachers, students and all people who capture demonstrations of “physics” in the world! The contest will accept submissions from December 6, 2016 to January 31, 2017. Also, the public can vote on the submissions at the contest video gallery page found on

There also is a specific Teacher Challenge!
