This website contains basically everything you would want to know about polymer science. Over a hundred mini-articles are present and are organized into an interactive mall of sorts. Each floor deals with a specific topic (listed above) and contains several articles, most of which contain useful molecular images and links to other articles. Many of the articles also contain interactive 3-D representations and shockwave animations.

The website is designed to teach students of all types of educational backgrounds and even includes a kids’ version of the website.

Evaluation Comments This is one of the best educational websites I’ve ever seen. The articles are extremely well written, though they contain numerous bad jokes. Even the most difficult material is explained succinctly and with language that someone with no educational background in polymers can understand it.
