The Why Files

I love this site! It goes into the science behind the news! On the main page you’ll find this week’s featured article and the article that was featured last week, as well as, links to other recent articles.

Also on the main page you’ll find the Curiosities section where you’ll find the answers to questions that people have asked. You’ll also find the Science Image section which you know I’m always happy to see. Last but not least you’ll find the link to the archives.

Two other sections I want to bring your attention to are:

Virtual Science – I loved this section. You’ll find interactive virtual science projects that you can explore and discover. Do you want to make your own rainbow, control a tornado, or even hit a home run? Well now you can with these virtual science experiments!

Teacher Activity Pages – you’ll find this link hiding nonchalantly near the bottom of the page under the Archive link. This section provides a great resource for teachers who are teaching science. Be sure to check it out.

Are you ready to discover the science behind the news? I know I am! I’ll be tuning in every week to find out what’s new to explore!

The Why Files

“The Why Files—the Science behind the News.” That is a simple description of this site. While visiting I got caught up in an article about Climate Change which discusses the movie “The Day After Tomorrow” and looks at the premise of the movie from a scientific point of view: could rapid climate change lead to another ice age as quickly as the movie showed? It is a very interesting article that talks about Global Warming and the Ice Age. I was very fascinated by the idea that you could date climates by the isotope frozen in ice samples.

There is also a good article on Sharks. It’s all about Shark Repellent, and whether or not it works. This article also mentions “Open Waters”the new shark flick.

You can also find out about “The Human Lie Detector”. Not to mention the fabulous in depth article on Mt. Saint Helens which talks about how volcanoes work, the ecology after an eruption, and even the science of predicting when and if volcanoes will erupt.

You can also check out the Cool Science Images, and the Interactive Science. In Interactive Science you can play with lightning, control a tornado, or even hit a home run.

This is one nifty science site, check it out today!
