The Physics Labs present "Physics Fundamentals"

How does a slinky walk down stairs? What is the physics of ollies? Join us on Physics Fundamentals as we explore these exciting questions! 

Physics Fundamentals is a fun, educational video series created by the Brown University Physics Department. Join Brown faculty and staff in the Demonstration Lab as we learn about the physics of our universe.

The first video will premier on the Brown University Department of Physics YouTube channel on Monday, January 24th at 4:00 PM (EST) in honor of International Day of Education. The United Nations General Assembly declared January 24th as International Day of Education to recognize and celebrate the role education has played in peace and community growth around the world.

Created with 5th to 8th-grade students in mind, these videos are engaging and educational for everyone. We hope they will be a valuable resource for students in the local Providence community, as well as here at Brown. New videos will be posted depending on faculty and staff availability. Send your physics questions to and they might be featured in the next episode!
