General Science and Physics
- Best of the Web Physics A general resource for researching physics on the Internet. Contributed by Amanda
- Timely Pick Science contributed by Galit from Timelypick.com. "The page displays curated current top shared science news from around the web. Hope you'll find Timelypick a useful resource."
- Physics for Kids: Simple Machines in Automobiles contributed by Taylor. "I just wanted to send you a quick email on behalf of my granddaughter Alyssa. Alyssa just finished the sixth grade and is enrolled in a summer enrichment STEM program that starts in a few weeks. ... Alyssa came across your Physics for Elementary Teachers page. I just wanted to personally thank you for making it. You have some great resources and information that really taught her a lot about physics and simple machines. "
- Saatchi Gallery Museums Around the World Contribution from Kimberly: " I also wanted to share a resource with you that I've been using: "Museums Around the World" - which I thought would make for a good addition to your page. It covers a wide variety of worldwide museums (art, history, anthropology, etc) and I found to be very helpful and easy to navigate. We have to work together to raise cultural awareness for our students."
Education and teaching resources
- Socratic.org contribution from Becca. "I'm not sure if you've heard about Socratic.org, but if your community likes Khan Academy, they'd likely find Socratic useful, too. Students can ask questions, do practice problems, and watch videos (from Khan and a bunch of other teachers) all for free, so it's great for learners who need help or just want more. Becca, Community Lead, Socratic.org"
- Mrs. Kennedy's Classroom includes a list of useful resources for teachers. Contributions from Katherine: Your resource: preprof.php is great! I have been researching with my class (I am a home economics teacher) on future careers! The kids and I work interactively, almost as if they are building the lesson plan with me. In this process, we go online together (we have new classroom technology that allows me to be online and interactive with the kids in the front of the classrom-it's cool) and have been researching about different types of careers. We spend time researching on possible careers that each student is interested in.
During the process of researching, the kids and I ran across your website - they loved it! We have been composing a list of resources about nursing and other medical professions as well as any information that catches our eye and we have been looking at your site often.
I would love to show them that they contributed and that their research was proven useful to others out there in the big "world wide web". Some of the resources we enjoyed are:
- Careerjet.com contribution from Jean-Baptiste and Judit, Product Managers Careerjet.com is a job search engine. It gives job seekers access to a huge selection of jobs that are sourced from various internet sites, saving the trouble of having to visit each site individually.
