The Particle Adventure: the fundamentals of matter and forces is an award-winning site that allows you to explore the world of fundamental particles and forces and then to investigate the experimental evidence and techniques.

Atomic Structure Timeline: Links to sites about scientists responsible for advances in our knowledge of atomic structure.

Electromagnetic Spectrum: Very basic information on the Electromagnetic Spectrum from NASA.

Electromagnetic Spectrum: Another website with basic information on the Electromagnetic Spectrum from NASA but on a more elementary level.

Electricity and Magnetism: HyperPhysics is an exploration environment for concepts in physics which employs concept maps and other linking strategies to facilitate smooth navigation. For the most part, it is laid out in small segments or "cards", true to its original development in HyperCard. The entire environment is interconnected with thousands of links, reminiscent of a neural network.
