Argonne National Laboratory, one of the US Department of Energy's largest research centers, has posted this 'Newton' website with its Division of Educational Programs. The interactive website provides students (mostly K-12) and teachers with answers to questions about astronomy, biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental sciences, mathematics, physics, and general science. Users type in a question, which is forwarded to an expert in that field. While 'Newton' has been available as a Telnet service since 1991, this new website allows free access to the searchable database of 15,000 questions and answers. Currently available archives cover the period 1992 through 1995.
