This page has links to some of the best science 'hot lists' and general science sites on the web. You can also link to science museums and science fair project sites from this page. Additionally, you can link to separate pages dealing with Biology & Zoology, Chemistry & Physics, and Earth Science.
General Science Sites and Hot Lists
- Cornell Math & Science Gateway
- An award-winning site for students in grades 9-12.
- Science news and research for more advanced reference. Requires registration. Categories include Biological Sciences, Health, Physical & Chemical Sciences, Earth & Space Science, and Engineering. Great for reports.
- The Science Page
- Each link here is described to make your search more efficient. A great site with many links organized by discipline. There's a search engine on the home page.
- Science Learning Network
- A real mix of science sites for students and teachers. Each link is annotated. Check out the Top Ten.
- Science NetLinks
- This is part of the Marco Polo site--from MCI and the National Academy for the Advancement of Science. Once you choose a general science subject area, you can click on a grade level and choose a content area from a pull-down menu.
- Brain Pop
- This is a funny, noisy site. You can view short movies on health, science, and technology topics. The limit is two per day for non-members.
