Physics Central

I've started collecting physics education links (see the sidebar). And, as with chemistry, I was hoping to find a professional organization offering resources to people interested in, and teaching, physics. And I did. The American Physical Society has a website called Physics Central. Here's what they say about it:

The American Physical Society represents some 45,000 physicists, and most of our work centers on scientific meetings and publications-the primary ways that physicists communicate with each other. With PhysicsCentral, we communicate the excitement and importance of physics to everyone. We invite you to visit our site every week to find out how physics is part of your world. We'll answer your questions on how things work and keep you informed with daily updates on physics in the news. We'll describe the latest research and the people who are doing it and, if you want more, where to go on the web. So stick with us. It's a big, interesting world out there, and we look forward to showing you around.
I plan on adding loads of other links and articles, as well as lab reports, so stayed tuned!
