An excellent periodic table. Providing some very good videos of experiments that you maybe cannot do or maybe shouldn’t do!

Up to date information, activities & chemistry news from around the world.

 

Human Biology

An interactive flash based webpage. What’s really cool is that you can download it to run on a PC (Mac and Windows).

Lower Secondary Science

Science is everywhere – and now it is even available on iTunes! SCOPE, Network Ten’s international award-winning science show for children, is now available for purchase and download on iTunes. The show is half an hour of fast, funny and informative science fun.

Scitech works with science centres and planetaria across the world to bring best practice in science teaching and learning techniques to Western Australia. All programs support and show links to the Curriculum Framework.

Created by Surf Life Saving Australia for the Australian Tsunami Advisory Group. It presents authoritative and engaging information in a highly visual manner with a focus on videos, animations, maps, graphics and interviews with experts and survivors.  As an interactive and online resource, we believe that it would be an ideal guide for science teachers to use when teaching earth sciences:  earth’s structure, tectonic plates, earthquakes, volcanoes and tsunamis. It provides everything you’d need to know about tsunami (the how, why, where and when, the tsunami threat to Australia and case studies of significant tsunami events. Lesson Plans aligned with the current geography and science curriculum.

The Scientists in Schools program allows you and your students to work with a scientist in a flexible, professional partnership. The scientist can act as mentor, role model or inspiration for your students, providing you and them with access to new ideas

The idea was simple. Teachers wanted to copy from television for teaching. Filmmakers wanted to be paid for this use of their work. Screenrights was set up to make this happen. This presentation is an introduction to Screenrights and its services.

Nifty animations and videos for Science, with many experiments that are done well and safely.

Lots of good health references for teachers, but enough other to put it in the miscellaneous category.

Laboratory Technician of Western Australia’s website. Full of even more links!

500 free science fair projects and ideas.
