Physics Rocks! Check Out This Online Exhibit!

If you have any interest at all in science and physics in particular you need to take a look at this wonderfully informative and often entertaining (and that's saying a lot coming from someone with a degree in English Lit.!) offering by the Center for History of Physics Online Exhibits of the American Institute of Physics website.

Here you will be able to explore some of the most fascinating and important scientific discoveries to date as well as the scientists who made them. Learn about: Marie Curie, Albert Einstein, The History of the Transistor, The “uncertainty principle” that Werner Heisenberg used to explain quantum theory, The Discovery of Global Warming, and lots more!

Science really comes alive in the Moments of Discovery exhibit which tells the story of three scientific discoveries (Fission, Pulsar, & Superconductivity) in the scientists' own words. You can read the text and hear their actual voices.

You will also find teacher guides, links, and further resources. Kudos to the American Institute of Physics!
