Next-Generation Molecular Workbench – HTML5-based Scientific Models, Visualizations, Graphing, & Probeware

I have written before about Molecular Workbench.  It’s pretty cool that it can now be made all-in-the-browser.

Molecular Workbench is already one of the most versatile ways to experience the science of atoms and molecules. Now thanks to Google’s generosity and the power of HTML5, we’re bringing it to Web browsers everywhere.

Huge (unofficial) rise in AP CS Test Takers

Last week was the AP CS Reading, where over 100 computing teachers read over students’ programs and graded them.  Several readers (including Barbara) have come back saying that the unofficial count for the number of tests this year was 26,000.  Compare that to 21,139 last year, and 19,390 the year before that.  We probably won’t have the official numbers until January, and we’ll get the demographic breakdown then, too.  A 20+% increase in a single year is remarkable!
