How Stuff Works Issue Date: 11-08-1998

Cool Spots imageGet out your cyber toolbox because it's time to open some appliances, do some exploring, and find out how stuff really works. You know there are no magical elves that make the phone ring. It's science. And it's great to learn how all these things we use every day really work. Pop the lid off www.howstuffworks.com to start. Poke around inside an internal combustion engine to find out what gasoline does once it's in the car, or crawl around in the human skin to find out what makes sunburns happen. It's your inside-out crash course on everything from remote controls to rocket science. Have fun tinkering, and don't forget to wash up before dinner.
