The goals of the Physics2000 Educational Initiative are to make physics more accessible to students and people of all ages by developing an innovative Internet Website, aimed at all ages, emphasizing imagery, interactivity and hierarchical organization, and by developing live classroom courses for undergraduate non-science majors with unconventional topical organization and web support; to demonstrate the connection between modern technology and earlier basic research by working backwards from familiar current devices and technologies to general principles established much earlier by basic experiment and theory; to foster an appreciation of the accomplishments of 20th century physics, as we approach the year 2000 by focusing public attention on current research achievements in physics and explaining their significance and by developing new inderdisciplinary and cross-topical undergraduate courses for both majors and non-majors.
