View Resource All About Atoms

Jefferson Lab (last mentioned in the February 16, 2000 Scout Report) is a Department of Energy national laboratory that conducts basic research into the atom's nucleus and whose education office and Web Site offers several on-line activities. The All About Atoms site offers a simple and easy to follow lesson on protons, neutrons, and electrons that includes illustrations and descriptions of each...

View Resource Atomic Orbitals

The Atomic Orbitals Web site "was established as part of an (ongoing) project at Purdue University to develop 'visualization modules' for general chemistry students." Using the Chime plug-in, which allows unique and stunning visualizations, visitors can learn what an atomic orbital is; what the 1s, 2s, 3s, 2p, 3p, and 3d orbitals are; what hybrid orbitals are; and more. The combination of...

View Resource University of Colorado: Jin Group

Deborah Jin, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado, discusses her group's research on ultra-cold trapped atoms. Scientists can find out about the group's newly released observation of fermionic condensate, which has been described as a new form of matter. The website provides general information about the group's two experiments: 40K Fermi Gas Experiment and the Bose/Fermi Mixture...

View Resource Penn State: Consortium for Education in Many-Body Applications

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the Consortium for Education in Many-Body Applications at Penn State University brings together scientists from a range of scientific and engineering disciplines to address "many-body" problems. These problems refer to "the complexities that arise when more than a few electrons or atoms or particles are involved." The solutions involve "the use of high...

View Resource Elements and Atoms: Case Studies in the Development of Chemistry

Carmen Giunta at Le Moyne College created this website to offer a series of articles by the pioneers in the science of atoms and elements. The author provides background and commentary on the work in order to educate users about how scientists work. The website is divided into four parts: elements, atoms, classification of atoms, and back to atoms. Students can find links for definitions of...

View Resource University of Heidelberg: Atom Chip Group

This website from the Atom Chip Group at the University of Heidelberg details research in "the study of the interaction between light and atoms, both for understanding the system itself and for investigating its possible uses for Quantum Information Processing and Control." The project and examples of the group's experiments are described on this website, along with a section overviewing the...

View Resource The World of Chemistry

One doesn't have to be a Glenn Seaborg or a Lord Ernest Rutherford to learn about chemistry, though it probably couldn't help to have some of their curiosity about the world of chemistry. Young chemists and their teachers will definitely benefit from this nice resource offered by the Annenberg Media project. This original video series was produced by the University of Maryland and the Educational...
