At we encourage our users to participate in the process of inquiry and discovery! Below you will find a growing collection of miscellaneous experiments and snippets we have tried and have found interesting and we believe that you will find them interesting too. They are repeatable experiments which bring a love of language and science together!
As such, we encourage you to try them yourself! We also hope that you will use them as a starting point for your own pet projects or lesson plans. And if you think of something new and interesting which is not on our list, we would be quite happy to hear from you. Additionally, we would be more than happy to credit you with your contribution if you would like to be named on our site. In any case let us know what you have tried!
