- The Microbe Zoo is you! This fun (and sometimes gross)
online educational exhibit offers a visit to an
adventureland of microbes, but reminds us that the world
of microbes is really the world we live in everyday.
Microbes live in our homes, our clothes, our food, our
pets, our bodies, and every other niche of our world.
Don't be surprised if your visit to the Microbe Zoo leaves
you feeling a little itchy.
- Access Excellence
- Access Excellence is a national educational program
that puts high school biology teachers in touch with their
colleagues, scientists, and critical sources of new
scientific information through an online network. If you
teach biology at the junior or senior high level, this
site is a must.
& Cotton Fields
- What can a seven-year-old do on the Web? Well, some
can create appealing webpages that communicate scientific
information. Spacecrafts, a research project done by Max,
and Cotton Fields, a collaborative project done by first-graders,
are two examples. Never underestimate the
creative power of fearless computer users.
- This exhibit offers everything you always wanted to
know about tornadoes, but were afraid to ask. Extremely
thorough, the exhibit takes you through the life cycle of
a tornado. If your curriculum includes weather science,
Tornadoes is an absolute must see.
- Teacher Developed Space Science Lesson Plans
- U.C. Berkeley's educational outreach program serves
lesson plans for space science. The lessons were developed
by high school teachers but some may be easily adapted for
junior high levels as well.
