Fistful of Favorites

Outward Bound
The well known adventure-education program offers online samples of their rigorous courses. The adventure stories are particularly interesting. Of course, you really can't experience Outward Bound unless you get out there and do it yourself. So, complete listings of course locations are also available.

The Virtual Cave
The Virtual Cave is really cool! If you've always wanted to climb down into the caverns of the earth, but never really had the gumption to do so, visit The Virtual Cave. It's one of the best "virtual" experiences on the Web.

Los Angeles River Tour
Isn't the Los Angeles River the punchline to some joke? Well, it may be, but it's also the subject of an exciting online tour. Like modern day explorers, you'll navigate the river from the head waters in the San Fernando Valley to the mouth of river in Long Beach, over 50 miles away. Don't forget your life jackets!

Science Fiction / Space Technology: Tools for Learning
Do you have to teach space science? Would your students rather watch science fiction movies and television shows? Now you can do both! Use the Space Educator's Handbook for ways to use science fiction to learn science fact.
