New Links - Videos, Games and Reading

It has been awhile since I have posted. I have been very busy. Working on new projects, etc. I am posting some links I think will be of use to many people.

1) http://www.youtube.com/user/TheHomeScientist

This goes with the Make Science Room and the book Illustrated Guide to Home Chemistry Experiments: All Lab, No Lecture. (Make: Books, 2008), which I have talked about in another post. He talks about making some chemicals form other chemicals to add to your lab, standardizing store bought chemicals, etc.

2) http://www.youtube.com/user/NurdRage

Another youtube creation on making your chemicals from easy to find substances in stores.

3) http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/indexmag.html

A free microscope magazine Micscape.

4) http://www.plos.org/journals/index.php

The Public Library of Science. You can read science journals for free.

5) http://fold.it/portal/

If you want to play around with and learn about folding proteins this is a lot of fun. Again it is free.

Enjoy there is much out there to look at and play with.
