What kind of science are we doing at Los Alamos National Laboratory?

Free education in many fields:

  • The Kahn Academy is a nonprofit organization producing rigorous free online lessons. Take a look, you may be amazed. (Videos) (Note to KA math students: Please don't drop your units. They can be helpful checking your answers and they are critically important in science.)
General science
  • How Stuff Works We appreciate the effort these people have put in to explain just about everything we can think of.
  • The Exploratorium Founded by Frank Oppenheimer, J. Robert's brother, the Exploratorium is the granddaddy of hands-on minds-on science museums. One of our favorite pages is here.
  • The Explodatorium is our Scientist Ambassador Barry Warthen's marvelous catch-an-egg-in-the-act-of-exploding device.(pdf)
  • Games and Puzzles from Jefferson Lab JLAB educators have so much fun that we just have to link to our cousin's page in ours.
  • The National High Field Magnetic Laboratory education site. LANL has the Pulsed Field Facility of this cooperative program. Lots about magnets!
  • Veritasium.com is an impressive effort to explain concepts in science, many of which are cloaked in misunderstandings. (Videos)
  • In a similar vein is Minute Physics. (Videos)
  • Our slide rule generates some interest. Wikipedia has a good article on how it works.
