The great part about Exploratorium's website is that it does a great job of bringing a museum experience to the online user. They educate the user about many of the things which are also covered in the actual Exploratorium. Even better, using the online website is completely free of charge, unlike entering the museum which requires an admission ticket.
The Explore Section on the Webpage
In this section of the webpage, there are different websites, interactive activities and more.
One of the items in the explore section is regarding tides on earth. It provides a short and clear explanation regarding the reasoning behind the cause of tides then provides a fun activity. The activity is basically an instructions page regarding how you can build a paper model to better understand tides. This is what makes this webpage stand out from all the others. Instead of a boring article, it provides a visual example for visually learners.
There is a also a sub-section to explore named apps. In my opinion, this is where the website gets extremely cool. There is an app available for Androids called Total Solar Eclipse, so therefore, I downloaded the app on my phone and started playing around with it. They have cool videos on solar eclipses and they even did a live webcast in March during an eclipse with representatives from both NASA and the Exploratorium.
