THE NUCLEAR CENTER
An Introduction To Nuclear
Most people take nuclear physics as the study of atom. But we have decided to show you the cooler side of nuclear physics and how it can be applied to life. No equations or boring thesis, we will present to you one of the most comprehensive compiled sources of information on nuclear physics. This site will show you the terrors of nuclear devastation and the good nuclear medicine has done for us, nuclear power working for us, and we will let you be the judge of whether nuclear power is a friend or foe.
This site takes its information from many other websites and has compiled it into a easily comprehensible, vast repository of information. The list of websites can be found under the section "Resources".
We get our orders to begin a ThinkQuest website, and gather partners...
Ian and Tim pair up...we get several applications to join our group on the TQ server.
To difficult to find another partner from overseas... this is going to be tougher than we thought
Ian and Tim decide to quit hunting for an overseas partner to form a core group of specialists and project managers... Ian and Tim.
Fierce debate between the two guys about the topic and group name...
A list of group names are thrown up... Stave™, Stanzas™, Atomic Monkies™, Nuclear Bananas™, Atomic Barf™, Godzilla, The Revengers, Bombers, Psycho-nutz™, Nuclear Psychos™, Humble Destroyers, Iron Guard, Atomic Terrorists™, Cannibals, The Cabal™, The Committee... Tim tells me he has a really cool group name, but to date he hasn't told it to me so I can't put it up here.
We decide on a topic. The Applications of Nuclear Physics to Peace and War...
We find a coach, Tim’s dad, who specializes in Nuclear Medicine...
We register with Thinkquest, and the waiting begins
The application is accepted, and our scheme goes into motion.
We deal with several management problems...Tim and Ian are joint leaders, but Tim is the Main Man.
The department of Ideas and Design goes to work.
They’re churning out some pretty cool stuff, but we decide to go for the techno-funk look of the much vaunted Adrenaline Vault©®™
Website Hierarchy is reeeaaaaally busy...
Design is working hard.
Resource Management kick-starts into action.
Research Department is online and operating (Average 2-3 hrs a day!)
Gathering of Committees shows good news... Website Hierarchy has worked out the main points and focus of the Nuclear Centre. Good job! Another piece of good news...we’ve been allowed to wholesale copy the information off some websites... as the Topic is to difficult for us to just research in the library...
The National Library proves fruitless and devoid of info about N-physics...
The Community Library proves that books are slowly becoming less informative than a good website...
50% of the information and pics and stuff have been obtained...
20% of the website is complete. Looking good!
Development slows down as Tim and Ian prepare for tests...(They’re very busy people, you know...);p
The website is 30% complete, 60% of required data has been collected.
Tim goes to New Zealand for a Student Exchange Programme...for 3 weeks!!! Ian is left to bear the burden alone...
The final sections of this website are built. The last week of July is spent touching up the aesthetic aspect of the website.
Finally! Everything is completed. Tomorrow, the website will be uploaded to the ThinkQuest server.
