Explore Planet Science

This week the FreqOUT! team have come across this site....
The site is run by the Future Innovators Team at NESTA and offers a variety of resources, ranging from games and feature articles to career information. The keywords here: enjoy the science, the technology and the innovation.
You can build your own indestructible planet, take part in a battle for planet science or investigate music-science by mixing and sampling.
You can be surprised by opening the magic box - there are top tricks that look like magic, but are in fact science; or try some science experiments at home.

A careers profile search is also a useful tool - the Planet Science database of scientists offers many opportunities such as the science library, full with science sites, news in science and technology; scientific organisations and museums.

We recommend you check this out for yourselves!

Summer Uni 09 Launched!

FreqOUT! has launched its Summer Uni programme this week. 11 young people are working alongside new media artist Jonathan Hall on the 'StreetView' project. The group is working to make short films, record interviews and take pictures of the local area in attempt to challenge Google's 'StreetView' application. We are sure theirs will be much better!
