SteelMATTER: An Interactive Website for Ferrous Metallurgy

SteelMATTER is a "series of interactive educational software resources aimed at helping students understand the key concepts and relationships in ferrous metallurgy." Guided Study is the main section of the site, which describes the six stages of steel production. Starting the guided study can be slightly confusing because of poor site organization; instead of taking users directly to the first stage, an interactive quiz is presented before any material is covered. However, this can easily be bypassed by clicking the Raw Materials link at the bottom of the page. From this point, the site provides a good, step-by-step overview of the processes involved in making steel. There are also numerous Java applets accessible from the main page that simulate many metallurgy processes.
