    Light & Sound 
    • Science: Anatomy of an Electromagnetic Wave

    • From NASA's Mission: Science, this site goes into depth with each of the different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum.  If you find that you have a project to do on the EM Spectrum, this will give you outstanding information.  Select the 'Tabs' along the right side of the page to access specific information on subjects like Microwaves, Ultraviolet Waves, X-Rays, and more ...
      Science: Prisms and Rainbows
      Special thanks to the Lyndhurst Girls' STEM Club for their kind and helpful recommendation to add this link to complement the information shared about the electromagnetic spectrum.  This includes special thanks to Denise Goodwin for reaching out to share how other links in this section have been useful for her club.  Wishing all of those participating in the Lyndhurst STEM club good experiemnts, strong algorithms, and successful discoveries!  Please visit the Lyndhurst STEM Club's recommended website below to explore more information about prisms and rainbows:
      Science: The Electromagnetic Spectrum
      Although this may sound like a challenging topic, you already know more about it than you may think. Check out this site, sponsored by NASA, for information and activities that are designed to get you on the right wavelength.
    Science: The Science of Light
    Light is everywhere in our world. We need it to see: it carries information from the world to our eyes and brains. Seeing colors and shapes is second nature to us, yet light is a perplexing phenomenon when we study it more closely.

    Science: The Microbe Zoo
    A microbe is any living organism that spends its life at a size too tiny to be seen with the naked eye. Microbes include bacteria and archaebacteria, protists, some fungi and even some very tiny animals that are too small to be seen without the aid of a microscope. Viruses and the recently discovered prions are also considered microbes.
    Science: Biomes and Ecosystems of the World
    There is a great deal of controversy about how many different biomes and ecosystems there are in the world.

There is much to learn about these environments as well as the plants and animals that inhabit them.
    Science: The Biology of Plants
    Plants are alive, just like people and animals. How do we know this? Living things all do certain things:
    • They grow and die.
    • They need energy, nutrients, air, and water.
    • They produce young.
    • They are made up of cells.
    • They react to what's around them.
