NSF oversees all U.S. research in Antarctica, and runs three research stations there. Visit the stations by video for a glimpse of the work, scenery and transportation on the Frozen Continent.
Images from NSF Observatories   more icon The View Through the Telescope
Telescopes allow us to "see" far beyond the limits of our eyesight, and to explore our universe more deeply. Tour a gallery of extraterrestrial images taken by NSF's optical and radio telescopes.
Exploring Protein   more icon Tour of the Cell
Biology is the study of life itself. In this fun and colorful interactive, explore how cell components work together to make the dizzying array of life we see around us.
Desktop Wallpaper   more icon Desktop Wallpaper Images
Chemistry and materials research can be as beautiful as they are fascinating. Import this wallpaper for images that are both visually breathtaking and scientifically rich.
Advanced Computer Simulation Screensaver   more icon Advanced Computer Imaging Screensaver

Sea Vent Viewer   more icon Sea Vent Viewer
Under the ocean surface, a variety of life forms thrive without sunlight, forming their own sunless ecosystem. Take a trip in the Sea Vent Viewer to explore the fascinating beauty and diversity of the seafloor.
Collaborative Interactive Science Education: The Maryland Virtual High School Earthquake Project   more icon Virtual Science Project
Students learn science best by doing it. Follow the steps of Maryland students during an earthquake simulation, as they use technology and collaboration to pinpoint the quake’s epicenter.
Engineering at All Scales   more icon Engineering at All Scales
Engineers push innovation by developing ever-smaller devices and more precise processes.  Click to uncover the "hidden" interior of a micro-hotplate or to magnify carbon nanotubes to 256,000 their normal size.
Fractal Geometry   more icon Fractal Geometry
Even math that's "just for fun" can be quite useful. Explore how "fractal geometry" creates natural-looking objects such as clouds or coastlines--or trees. Make your own fractal in this educational interactive.
Nanoscience Screensaver   more icon Nanoscience Screensaver
Nanoscience is not only transforming – it’s visually astounding. Visit the marvelous visual world of atoms, electrons, crystals, and polymer namrods through this screensaver you can download at home.
The Prisoners Dilemma   more icon The Prisoner's Dilemma
Social scientists use structured "games," like the classic Prisoner's Dilemma Game, to reveal how and why people make choices. This game shows how your choices depend in part on the choices of others.
Physics Interactive   more icon A Matter of Scale
The universe isn't just a haze of random particles. It has structure at every scale, from quarks to humans to galaxies. Borrow the eyes of a physicist for a pictorial tour of our multi-scale cosmos.
