Interesting Science Links…
Reeko’s Mad Scientist Lab is not the only cool science website on the Internet. Here’s some other cool geeky websites that we like.
Alright, so the list is not exactly ‘extensive’ but it’s a start. Reeko will keep adding interesting science links as he stumbles across them in his never-ending quest for knowledge. Here are some sites that Reeko’s thinks are great!
|SciCental||This award winning site has been online for over a decade now and offers breaking science research news in the areas of biosciences, health sciences, physics and chemistry, earth and space, and engineering.|
|Keep Green||Keep-Green.com delivers eco-friendly, green living information including a great article on how to make a flat panel solar cell for those wishing to utilize solar power to energize their homes (or labs).|
|Franklin Institute Science Museum||This page is hosted by, who else – The Franklin Institute Science Museum, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Although much of their site is previews of exhibits from their museum, be sure to check out their Online Exhibits page – it’s the next best thing to being there.|

The keyword here is ‘Interactive’. This site features a interactive ‘globe’ showing where is is night and where it is day. You can manipulate the globe by clicking on it. Great way to teach your kids about day and night and planetary rotation.|
|Space Shuttle||This is NASA’s page dedicated to the Space Shuttle missions. You can track current missions, read about the payloads, and check out crew biographies. Using Real Audio you can actually listen in to the astronaut’s conversations in real time (as it happens). Also features lots of photos and video shots.|
|Science News Online||The Science News magazine has been around for over 70 years, and for good reason. This site has up-to-date science news that’s interesting! Want to know how a computer chip works? Heard about the new planet discoveries? Check this site out for all this and much, much more.|
