Quick science activities for young people. Love it!
Animated Science
vmstar.gif (1122 bytes)
There are animations, photos, videos, and forums all aimed at (mainly) secondary school science.  The author is a practicing teacher and the site was originally intended for the use of his pupils. The animations are designed to be suitable for use in the classroom or at home on PC or multimedia projector. They span various topics such as electricity, radioactivity, waves, forces, rocks, bonding and earth sciences. There is also a large collection of photos which are intended for educational use.

vmstar.gif (1122 bytes)
Information and activities for children on a wide range (more than 150) of science topics. This excellent resource contains all sorts of child-friendly things and lots of ideas for things to do. Unfortunately, there's now charge for what they used to give for free - except for a few samples. It is quite expensive but membership gives access to similar collections for Technology, English, Maths, Art & Music, Social Studies and Health. There is also a support section for teachers. The pages have rather a lot of graphics to load and can be a little slow if you don't have a broadband connection but worth waiting for.
Brantacan
vmstar.gif (1122 bytes)
This site is obviously produced by an enthusiast. There is an excellent section about Bridges, as well as sections about Colours, Nature's Maths, Physics, Snakes, Sound and Water.

Examcentre is aimed at 16-18 yearolds who are studying for science exams and at their teachers. There are forums where students can discuss their subjects and ask questions and a forum for teachers, too. There are also over 300 articles on scientific topics, written by experts. Sadly, the team who run this site have recently had to introduce a moderate membership fee for access to the articles (10 p a) in order to maintain the sites ability to provide a high quality service. Probably well worth it if you, or your students are that stage of things.
