Working on a Sunday?
Thank you so much to Rhonda Petty and the staff at Rolling Hills Water Park! They let us into the park early today so that we could film physics on the green slide. It was very nice of y'all to let us do that. Aaron Fown, thank you for providing aerial perspective using your UAV (unmanned arial vehicle). And of course, thanks to my wife and kids for all your help and patience. Yep, I worked today.
Today I am officially beginning my quest to have my video subtitles translated into languages other than English. So, if you are multi-lingual, please consider volunteering some of your time!
Thank you so much to Bogdan Ghiorghiu, Cheryl Zhang, and Emily Serafa Manschot for getting us started!
I updated one of my videos today to make it 50 seconds shorter. How? I fast forwarded through my running. Why? I mean really, it's only 50 seconds, right?
Well, if you consider the video has been watched for 7863 minutes and I reduced the video to 93.3% of its original length, if this video had originally been 50 seconds shorter, that would have meant people would have had to watch the video for 522 less minutes and still learned just as much. That's worth it to me.
If you have a link to the video, please update that link.

"I really want to thank you for your help! The best thing u do is not making payment compulsory which makes studying easier for low income students like me. I faced lack of funding and therefore teachers, so free online lectures like yours were a great help.” Aman Agrawal from Khurja, a small town in India.
I thought I might not be able to film today (the pictures are from yesterday), however, the swelling has subsided. Yea!
I was just contacted by a representative of the YouTube EDU approval team. She wanted to let me know that, even though my YouTube Channel thomaspalmerphysics has "received (easily) hundreds of nominations", it is not eligible for YouTube EDU. Why? Sadly, the board is too difficult to read. Oh well. Thank you to everyone that nominated that channel. The Flipping Physics Channel is a member of YouTube EDU and she even said that "the videos on FlippingPhysics are AMAZING". Again, thanks for all your support; with it I'll keep making the AMAZING Flipping Physics Videos!
I have begun to collaborate with teachers I met at FlipCon14 and I thought some of you might be interested to see what the process looks like.
I showed my 11 year old daughter the Always #LikeAGirl Youtube video yesterday. She decided to make her own #LikeAGirl video as her response.
Yep, I make physics videos in the hope that you can learn physics. If you are a physics teacher, I am very hopeful that you will want to use them to help flip your physics class.
