written by the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
This multimedia collection, developed for general audiences, tells the evolving story of the "nature of nature", as it takes the learner on a journey to explore nature's tiniest particles.  It features image sets, simulations, slideshows, news articles, a timeline of subatomic particle discovery, and interactive tutorials. Example resources include:  Accelerator Science in Medicine exhibit, the history of antimatter, "Search for the Higgs", colliding gold ions, "Search for Extra Dimensions", and discoveries that led to the Standard Model.

Editor's Note: In addition to the curricular materials, this web site provides articles that explain the broader impacts to society derived from discoveries in the field of high-energy physics. It also gives a coherent and balanced look at the limitations of current scientific knowledge about elementary particles.

Fermilab is a national science laboratory and home of the Tevatron, the world's second-largest particle accelerator. Although Tevatron was shut down on 09/29/11, Fermilab continues to perform experimentation in particle physics.
