Web Site of the Week: Mysteries and Science: Exploring Aliens, Ghosts, Monsters, the end of the world, and other weird things
This site for kids is set up to explore the intersection of mysteries and science. The list of topics, which proceeds alphabetically, touches on abracadabra, area 51, control groups, monsters, superstition, scientific skepticism, vampire, and many others. An article on therapeutic touch offers the story of Emily Rosa, a nine-year-old who conceived an experiment to find out if energy healers could feel energy in a controlled setting. The site also links to fascinating “Sciency Websites,” such as Kitchen Science Experiments and Do We Use Only 10% of Our Brain? (For the record, the answer is no, neuroscience has never made the claim that we use only 10% of our brains.) [CNH]
