Transistorized! The History of the Invention of the Transistor

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.
