Other Science Resources
The Why Files
One of my favorite science sites on the web (and one of the inspirations for this site), The Why Files' team of intrepid science journalists explores the science behind the news headlines you see each day. What causes El Nino? Why are some bacteria growing resistant to current antibiotics, and how can we stop them in the future? How do detectives investigate an airline crash? The Why Files answers these questions, and many more, with objective reporting that offers up several viable theories without choosing sides.
Online home of one of the world's best science museums...the Exploratorium in San Francisco is a museum where almost every single exhibit is hands-on. I went there this summer on a road trip and spent a whole morning wandering around. Their web site captures the same stimulating appeal of the museum.
The Mad Scientist Network
Need an answer to that burning science question? Maybe madsci.org can help you. A spinoff enterprise of Washington University School of Medicine at St. Louis, the Mad Scientist Network lets you search through its extensive database of previously asked/answered questions in a myriad of science fields. If you don't find what you're looking for pose your question to them and they'll e-mail you a reply by an expert in that field. A very helpful resource.
The Discovery Channel
Not only does the Discovery Channel offer some of the best science programming on television (along with PBS), but it offers some of the finest science content on the web. If you haven't been by this site before, or if you haven't been in a long time, it's time for a return visit.
ThinkQuest isn't just a competition for high-schoolers to create educational web pages for college scholarships, it's also a fantastic resource for learning about the world around you. Search the entries of any of the annual ThinkQuest competitions, and you'll find well-designed, thorough sites that put science--and many other disciplines--into simple terms. ThinkQuest entries cover everything from explorations of fractal mathematics to the process behind making movies.
If I only met the age requirements, I'd be entering this contest in a heartbeat.
How Stuff Works
"How Stuff Works" has to be seen to be believed. Marshall Brain (yes, that's his name) is a former college professor who maintains a massive site that tells you, well, "how stuff works." (Not too hard to figure that one out.) It's sites like this that are what the Web was made for, and I'm not the only one who thinks so; Mr. Brain won the 1998 "Cool Site of The Year" award from the CSotD folks for his work on HSW.
Bill Nye, The Science Guy
Bill Nye is the coolest. At Nye Labs, his KCTS home page, you'll find every episode archived for your reading pleasure.
Geared for the younger crowd, given, ... but it's still high-quality, Disney-produced educational television.
Netsurfer Science
A shameless plug! In my spare time, I write articles for this online digest. You can subscribe to it for free (no spam lists, no strings attached ...really!), and they'll send a fresh catch of science links and reviews to your mailbox every two weeks. With irreverent prose, fresh content, and hard science, it's good stuff. Don't take my (obviously biased) word for it; check it out yourself.
Science News Search Engines
Science Daily
Wired Tech News
Slashdot Science
Search AltaVista for:

I use AltaVista most frequently because its search syntax is a little more flexible than other search engines. Google, Yahoo, HotBot, and Merriam-Webster are also great helps when it comes to research.
