Designed to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists, The Honeywell – Nobel Initiative establishes a forum for students worldwide to learn directly from Nobel Laureates in Chemistry and Physics.

The Honeywell – Nobel Initiative includes a large number of short podcasts by Nobel prize winners, such as:

Leon Lederman explains that there is a flaw in current quantum theory. He describes how the Higgs particle would provide information to refine the theory…

Steven Chu describes how he and other scientists use lasers to manipulate atoms in order to answer fundamental questions in quantum physics…

The temperature of the earth is increasing. Mario Molina discusses the consequences of this phenomenon caused by human activity…

Students must be taught the value of science at an early age. Richard Schrock considers helping students to appreciate the contributions of science and to inspire…

The site is pretty and the videos are excellent but once again they offer an example of a site that fails to follow basic web usability practices. You can’t link to the location of these collections of webcasts easily. If you have trouble finding them, which I image some will – click on the links to “video lab.”
