The Quarked! project was conceived by Professor Alice Bean and a diverse team of collaborators at the University of Kansas in 2003 as an entertaining method of introducing the world of subatomic physics to kids and adults. (...) Now, Quarked! - Adventures in the Subatomic Universe brings subatomic physics to life through a multimedia project including an interactive website, a facilitated program for museums and schools, and an educational outreach program. (...) Targeted to kids ages 7-12 (and their families), the Quarked! project plans also include an animated television series plus science-based toys and games featuring the Quarked! characters.
