Science CD-Rom

3rd October 2003 at 01:00
The world of muons and magnetic multilayers is not one where every A-level science student feels at home. Living in a Materials World is a very well-designed CD-Rom that slots these concepts and many others - like superconductors and particle accelerators - into the lives of real working scientists and technicians. Using a mixture of animation, information and interviews, it takes visitors on a virtual tour of ISIS, a cutting-edge experimental facility where materials are studied at a molecular level.

There are challenging questions along the way - and model answers in a teachers' section. Living in a Materials World is available from Dr Martyn Bull, CCLRC ISIS Facility, Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Chilton, Didcot OX11 0QX.
