Why not celebrate Earth Day by learning something new about our amazing earth? A great place to start is Access Science. You can access this awesome database from WPL’s Science Research page. Access Science isn’t just encyclopedia articles. There are image galleries, news videos, animations, and a lot more awesome stuff. I just checked out a news article from earlier in the week: “Massive Solar Flares Captured in 3-D” and their image of the week (right).
Are you or someone you know taking a science class? Access Science also has a Study Center. The Study Center includes Topical Study Guides, AP Study Guides, suggested Essay Topics, and Bibliographies. What a great resource! There is a Q&A section where the editors answer your science questions. I just learned that tsunamis are most often caused by earthquakes, not the action of the tide.
If you want to access it from home, you’ll need a WPL card number and PIN. If you don’t have (or don’t remember) your PIN, look at the To Create a PIN instructions.
