Hosted by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) in collaboration with the American Institute of Physics and ScienCentral, Inc., this handsome Website serves as a companion to an upcoming PBS documentary, Transistorized!, to be aired November 8, 1999. The searchable site offers in-depth background to the history and science of transistors. An Interactives section includes a rubic's cube type of puzzle using elements from the Periodic Table, and a game which allows players to form their own semiconductor crystals. A hyper-linked glossary, a resources section with links to Websites, and a print bibliography round out this well-produced site.
