General Science & Technology Web Resources Guide

Welcome to the City College General Science & Technology Web Resources Page

These websites, designed for the lay audience, are helpful for non-scientists and non-engineers who are interested in or want to learn about science and technology.

Nearly all of these websites are free. The few databases that are restricted to City College students, faculty and staff are noted.

Most of these tabs are self explanatory. But it is sometimes hard to describe what a tab covers in a single word or short phrase.
The Everyday Things tab has several websites that describe what many household things are made of and how they work.
The Health & Medicine tab can help you with your personal health. Here you can see the nutritional content of all foods. Need to lose weight? If so you can see how many calories you burn in a day and how exercise can help. Have questions about abuse and addiction to drugs, both the legal and illicit kind.  You will find help under this tab.
The Dictionaries tab has several specialized glossaries some of which have striking full-color illustrations.
The Science Projects
tab shows how you can use idle time on your computer to advance science. So please investigate this resources page by clicking on these tabs to see what may be interesting and helpful for you.
