Neucleon - what it's all about

 

Neucleon is a place where the spark of creation is kindled, where you learn by doing, and where making your world and its technology fit you is preferred to fitting yourself to the world.

Neucleon is like a gym; there are dues, specialized equipment, trainers, goals, and hard work. Unlike a gym, the brain and the imagination get a workout.
