Hi, I’m Derek McKenzie, creator of that personal obsession I call Physics Footnotes 😉
The basic mission of the Physics Footnotes project is to publish short, interesting, visually stimulating physics articles that nicely complement a typical physics textbook (hence my term ‘footnotes’) to help STEM teachers, science communicators, and other physics enthusiasts, broaden and deepen their physics knowledge, one footnote at a time…
This is not your typical blog though, and you’re probably wondering where the content is hiding. There are three ways to access the footnotes I create:
- FOLLOW Physics Footnotes on Facebook and/or Twitter (links at top right of this page) — I post about twice a day to those feeds; most of it serious physics, but some of it more light and playful.
- SUBSCRIBE to Physics Footnotes by email (form above) — This is the best way to make sure you don’t miss anything I create, as I not only send out an email when I have something significant for you, but I also do a round-up from time to time, in case you’ve had a busy week or two and haven’t had the time to keep up.
- JOIN Physics Footnotes by supporting the project through this page here. When you join, the Members Portal comes alive, opening up a suite of galleries full of juicy physics resources (hundreds of GIFs, videos, etc.). The content is searchable by topic, and provides a neat little bookmarking feature, allowing you to easily find and retrieve a set of favorites.
