How I Use It
We have a science fair every year in our school. This site offers fantastic ideas for science fair projects. They outline the scientific method, provide ideas, and helpful hints. It's a great resource to pass on to parents so they can help their children. I also can see myself using the video tutorials in my class as well as utilize the list of experiments with directions. I love to do hands-on science experiments in my classroom and this site offers a ton of ideas. In addition there is a section that provides research links to various science topics.
My Take
I love this site!! It is very useful for students, teachers and parents. If you are looking for some fun science experiments then this is your place!!! It's free, fun and user friendly. It offers experiments, science fair help including an explanation on the scientific method as well as research links. The videos are a great way to show an experiment before doing it or if you don't have the materials because of cut backs you can still show them what happens. One downfall was that when I clicked on a couple of the research links they weren't valid but more of them worked than didn't.
