Hi All -

Long time, no post! I've decided to get back in the habit of posting 5
useful websites on a theme each week. I'll post them to this Google
Group (http://groups.google.com/group/friday5) and to my blog (http://
www.lucygray.org).

To keep you updated, I'm now working as an education consultant and am
busy with a variety of projects which you can read about here:

Hope all is well with you.... and now on to my first list of 2011!

This week's topic is science. I've been looking for resources related
to my son's science fair project and to my work on a science
curriculum project. Enjoy!

1) Google Science Fair

Google is holding a virtual science fair for students ages 13-18. Lots
of great prizes!

2) Science Buddies

This is listed on Google's science fair web site, and it's the best
site I've found for locating interesting science projects.

3) Museum of Science and Industry: Simple Machines Game

Great interactive game for teaching kids about simple machines.

4) Science Hack: Science Videos Search Engine

Videos have supposedly been screened by scientists in order to verify
accuracy.

5) PHeT Interactive Simulations

Simulations for demonstrating science concepts. Highly recommended by
colleagues in my personal learning network.
