This website's mission is to "stimulate and motivate students with physical disabilities in grades 4-7 to pursue aeronautics-related careers." As a byproduct, however, they've created a website with useful resources for anyone with an interest in math.

PERMANENT
PERMANENT, an acronym for "Projects to Employ Resources of the Moon and Asteroids Near Earth in the Near Term," has an intriguing idea. The project proposes to "develop outer space on a very large scale, rapidly, by using materials already in space -- asteroids near Earth and/or lunar material -- instead of expensively blasting up from Earth all the materials used in space."

Exploring Leonardo
This excellent website offers resources for learning about Leonardo da Vinci, one of the best known, yet least known, characters in world history.
