Welcome to the Exploratoria home page!
Exploratoria is a GitHub Organization. Feel free to request an invitation to join.
To supply simple yet powerful scripts that help engineers and designers to create experiments without having to be dedicated software 'full stack programmers'
To help youngsters and oldsters delve into new topics with a hands-on, active, 'I can play with this' approach
To create apps that work not just on computers but also on mobile devices such as phones and tablets
To help envision new types of visualizations
To help people understand, tackle and push the envelope with increasingly complicated tasks based on the scientific method
The intention is to provide scripts dealing with the following categories:
- Astronomy & Solar System
- Electricity & Magnetism
- Engineering & Structure
- Heat & Temperature
- Human Anatomy
- Language & Speech
- Light & Color
- Mathematics & Patterns
- Mechanics, Dynamics & Motion
- Navigation & Mapping
- Smell - Taste - Touch
- Sound & Hearing
- Vision & Eye Logic
- Waves & Resonance
- Weather & Water
Noticeably absent are categories pertaining to computers, the Internet, digital media and the like. This website uses technology to explain, show and demonstrate the physical and theoretical aspects of our world. It attempts to achieve the best of what technology should do in the real world.
Short coding samples - also called snippets - solutions to common tasks, 'presented in detail so that the users who are not necessarily expert in the field can produce workable results'.
These are the files we use to build this web site. You can use them too.
