The International Union of Pure and Applied Physics declared 2005 as the World Year of Physics, which coincides with the 100th anniversary of the year in which Einstein published three very influential physics papers. The United States physics community created this website to promote "plans to bring the excitement of physics to the public and inspire a new generation of scientists." Educators and students can find out about the schedule of events as well as ideas on how to become involved. The also site features a timeline of Einstein's life and achievements. To receive news and updates on events, users can sign up for the free World Year of Physics newsletter. While many of the media links are currently being constructed, users can find a downloadable poster and logo.
