Background to the schools Wikipedia

SOS Children, which runs nearly 200 sos schools in the developing world, organised this selection. Before you decide about sponsoring a child, why not learn about different sponsorship charities first?

The physics articles in this 2008/9 Wikipedia schools selection have been divided into electricity and electronics, general physics, space transport, space and the planets. We have included Pluto in the planets since people might look for it there, not because we think Pluto is necessarily a planet.
