Quarked! - Adventures in the Subatomic Universe

Linked product
Description
Quarked! - Adventures in the Subatomic Universe brings subatomic physics to life through a multimedia project including an interactive website, a facilitated program for museums and schools, and an educational outreach program. Animated segments focus on the adventures of Ushi (up-quark), Danny (down-quark), and Harold (up-quark) as they take on the invisible world of particle physics in their proton subatomic universe vehicle (SUV). Each Quarked character has an animated human counterpart who learns ways to solve everyday problems through the Quarked! micro-world adventures. Targeted to kids ages 7–12 (and their families), the Quarked! project plans also include an animated television series plus science-based toys and games featuring the Quarked! characters.
