This section of sciencelines will share information about online
resources. We'll also include information about projects in which
you and your students may want to participate. Sites are not included
unless they are accessible at the time of publication.
Please note that many Internet sites are now copyrighted. When
using information and images from sites, be sure to reference
and use them appropriately.
If you do not currently have access to the Internet, you do have
options. Come use the ENC Demonstration Site computers in the
Teacher Resource Center. You may want to attend an Internet Awareness
Workshop. Look for one to be offered this fall
Integrating the Internet Into the Secondary Science Classroom
is on the Web at http://kendaco.telebyte.com:80/billband/Possibilities.html
This site has received both the Scout Report selection and 4-Star
Magellan Site awards. But, does that make it worthy of your time
to look into it? Yes. Here you will find information on ways to
evaluate Internet projects as well as opening up your thoughts
about ways the Internet can enhance your science activities. Within
the following categories of Interpersonal projects, Information
Collection and Exchange, Problem-Solving Projects and Miscellaneous
Projects, you can see a collection of links showing collaborative
problem-solving, online courses, electronic mentoring, electronic
appearances, social action projects and parallel problem-solving
to name just a few. Bill Bandrowski also includes a highlight
page of the month currently, the NSTA's Scope, Sequence &
Coordination Project. The site looks to be a site that will be
kept up to date regularly. Last updated June 25, 1996.
We are contacted by many teachers looking for physics education
resources. In addition to our newly designed Fermilab Education
pages at: http://www-ed.fnal.gov
we can recommend the Contemporary Physics Education Project
(CPEP) site at:
There are a lot of possibilities to do at this site. Whether you
participate in the online interactive course "Fusion - Physics
of a Fundamental Energy Source" or take the tour of the inner
workings of the atom and tools for discovery, you'll find nice
graphics and fascinating content. You can get information here
about ordering their software or notebook and classroom posters
on the Standard Model of Fundamental Particles and Interactions
also. From Michael Barnett, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory.
Fisher Science Education
combines the resources in the
comprehensive Fisher Scientific catalog as well as the Sci-Ed
Site Explorer browser to locate Internet science education sites.
Accessed at: http://cybermart.com/fisher/v1/index.html,
and you'll find not only the searcher and catalog but real teacher
tips and a fascinating very complete science calendar. This can
be a real useful science educator tool.
National Geographic Society Online
is a new gem on the
Internet. Whether you subscribe to some of these publications
or not, you'll find explorations and opportunities to collaborate
with archaeologists and others in field. Articles from the National
Geographic Magazine, Traveler Magazine and National Geographic
World (for students) are available. The latest exploration to
the Hinalayas to find the ice princess includes maps and a journal
to enhance the experience. Fun, informative and something for
all ages will be found here: http://www.nationalgeographic.com/main.wd
You Can With Beakman and Jax
is a fun elementary site. This site's motto seems to be "A
Good Question Is A Powerful Thing!" and includes a segment
on "50 Terrific ?'s" posed by students, "Interactive
Demos" and activities related to questions for students to
do at home or perhaps in class. A nice feature is that when topics
from questions relate to one another, they are linked. Information
about the TV show, Beakman's World, is also available.
