7 outstanding science based websites you may not know is from the Learning Never Stops blog. Great links to science sites.
The Kids Should See This Videos
This web site was designed to connect kids, parents, and teachers with smart, conversation-starting videos – about science, art, music, nature, and more – that probably weren’t made for kids, but are still perfect for them. Yes, it’s true that there are plenty of videos for kids out there, but they often include unnecessary wacky noises or simplistic narration that distracts from the beauty of what’s real, and what’s completely fascinating on its own. Why not share content that doesn’t underestimate what children can learn or might be interested in?
Science of Disney is a site in development that will allow students to participate in real life project based learning with a STEM emphasis. Check back as new features are added.
Pulp-O-Mizer The Pulp-O-Mizer allows its lucky operator to select from menus of backgrounds, foregrounds, and magazine titles and to add new and exciting text to them for use as web graphic memes, blog illustrations, Facebook posts, forum messages, or for any other non-commercial purpose.
