SCIENCE RESOURCES

FOR KIDS
ALA great websites for kids
BBC science - All kinds of stuff for ages 4-11 (Note: Learning zone broadband is composed of short video clips, but unfortunately, came up with a "not available in your area" message). This site also has English and math activities and teacher lesson plans. It looks like it could be lots of fun.
Websites for kids - All kinds of choices (animals, the arts...) by American Library Association
Science for kids - American Association for the Advancement of science - latest research results
Science news for kids
DNA matching game on the Nobel Prize website
Interactive science videos with great sound effects (lightning, crack of a baseball bat) that show the best temps to grow snowflakes, the arc of a baseball, making rainbows, tornado damage, lightning.
Fish that glow in the dark. They're only $5.00. The fish have been transformed with green fluorescent protein. At night, under a black light, they glow in the dark. Who needs a night light?
Cool Science - Howard Hughes Medical Center. Ask a scientist. Science activities.
Childrens Vascular Health Activity Book - ages 5-12. A free activity book for kids!
Ask a Naturalist - Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History


FOR ADULTS
FREE books about cells and genetics The books are really nice! EXCELLENT pictures.
FREE CD for high school and college faculty - about green fluorescent protein (GFP) that originated from bioluminescent crystal jellyfish. I haven't looked it over, but I read Marc Zimmer's book (Glowing Genes). GFP is an amazing scientific tool.
Utah Genetics - Undestanding DNA, addiction, stem cells.....
Cool Science - Howard Hughes Medical Center - teacher resources
