As Dr. Bob explains at his website, "My goal is to share some very interesting tidbits in a manner that is easily understandable. I strive to provide enough depth to keep everyone interested."
When you get to the site, scroll down the page to the featured "Interesting Science Stuff." Use the menu to explore interesting phenomenon and learn the science behind them such as:
-Lights from the Abyss -Hole in the Head -Killer Waves -The Death of Our Sun -Insect Chemical Warfare -Amazing Ice -Mysterious Sliding Boulders -and more!
Scroll further down the page and click on "Science Circle" to learn all about:
Note: Other sciences such as Chemistry, Biology, and Marine Science are still under construction at the site - so bookmark it and check back.
Check out "Kids World" that contains fun activities inspired and partially developed by Dr. Bob's daughters. And don't miss the Science Fair Project Ideas and Dr. Bob's Science Q&A's with all kinds of interesting science facts and trivia.
This is a terrific site that will enhance any study of science and spark interest in the most reluctant scientists. :O
