Dance for a Chicken: The Cajun Mardi Gras
Cajun filmmaker Pat Mire gives us an inside look at the colorful, rural Cajun Mardi Gras. Every year before Lent begins, processions of masked and costumed revelers, often on horseback, go from house to house gathering ingredients for communal gumbos in communities across rural southwest Louisiana. The often-unruly participants in this ancient tradition play as beggars, fools, and thieves as they raid farmsteads and perform in exchange for charity or, in other words, "dance for a chicken."

Is the atom fundamental?
Students are introduced to the idea of classifying atoms into families according to their chemical properties. On this page of a tutorial on particle physics, students discover that these atoms are made out of even smaller particles. Students compare a model of an atom from the year 1900 with a modern view of an atom. Experimentation shows that these atoms have a small, dense nucleus with a positive charge surrounded by a negative cloud of electrons. Students are presented with a riddle asking w
