Throcky Gets Physical (2002) : A Physics Musical
https://archive.org/details/throcky_gets_physical
Throcky Gets Physical (2002)
Throcky Gets Physical was a physics musical written and produced by Mr. Tapper's Block 4 Physics AP class at Morristown High School, NJ. Its one and only showing occurred on April 29th, 2002 in the high school auditorium.
Throcky was a character who appeared often in our physics textbook as "your annoying cousin Throckmorton", who was always swinging on a swing demonstrating pendular motion or trying to balance on a see-saw or something of the sort. We took his name and wrote a story about a teenage Throcky and his romantic problems.

Exploring & Collecting History of Science Online
More than ninety percent of all scientists who have ever lived are alive today. It is the goal of ECHO to record their stories and the ever-expanding, ever-accelerating history of recent science and technology using a contemporary technology well suited to such a daunting yet critical task: the Internet.
On its most fundamental level, ECHO provides a centralized guide for those looking for the scattered Web sites on the history of science and technology. Its staff will annotate these sites so that it will become easier for those seeking historical materials to find exactly what they are looking for, or for the merely curious to explore topics of interest.

Museum of the History of Science
The Museum of the History of Science houses an unrivalled collection of historic scientific instruments in the world's oldest surviving purpose-built museum building, the Old Ashmolean on Broad Street, Oxford. By virtue of the collection and the building, the Museum occupies a special position, both in the study of the history of science and in the development of western culture and collecting.
The objects represented - of which there are approximately 10,000 - cover almost all aspects of the history of science, from antiquity to the early twentieth century. Particular strengths include the collections of astrolabes, sundials, quadrants, early mathematical instruments generally (including those used for surveying, drawing, calculating, astronomy and navigation) and optical instruments (including microscopes, telescopes and cameras), together with apparatus associated with chemistry, natural philosophy and medicine.

Listen to Albert Einstein explain his famous formula - Einstein Explains the Equivalence of Energy and Matter
"It followed from the special theory of relativity that mass and energy are both but different manifestations of the same thing -- a somewhat unfamilar conception for the average mind. Furthermore, the equation E is equal to m c-squared, in which energy is put equal to mass, multiplied by the square of the velocity of light, showed that very small amounts of mass may be converted into a very large amount of energy and vice versa.
