 If you wish to see the prior post with all of their resources… Click Below… also email or reply with your own STEM Site. I will try to fit it in to a bonus post. I have already received a few suggestions. Keep them coming!

    Part 1 Then click here to see those first ten.

    Part 2 Now up to 20 resources

    Part 3 Check out these 10 to make 30

    Part 4 A list that now supplies up to 40 STEM sites

    Part 5 An amazing 50 STEM sites.

    MIT K12 – This site was built around a simple idea: K12 educators and MIT should be working together to make movies for K12 students. Educators submit ideas for experiments or demonstrations they would like to see an MIT student perform and explain in a short video. MIT students can then “check out” these assignments or they can come up with their own ideas and check them out themselves. The result is an amazing K12 STEM video online to be used in the classroom.

    Science Update– This is an amazing 60-second feature radio show covering the latest discoveries in science, technology and medicine. Science Update answers listeners’ science questions, phoned in to a toll-free answer line, 1-800-WHY-ISIT (949-4748), or submitted to the online form. A week’s worth of Science Update news briefs is available for download as the Science Update Podcast

    Secret Lives of Wild Animals – This is a wonderful website for children that features special creature cams—videos from the animal’s viewpoint. Through this NSF portal, students can explore though modern technologies intimate glimpses of rarely seen behaviors of wild animals.

    BEN- Also known as Bioscinet, the BEN Portal provides access to education resources from BEN Collaborators and is managed by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). Over 19,290 reviewed resources covering 77 biological sciences topics are available. BEN resources will help engage student interest, shorten lesson preparation time, provide concept updates, and develop curricula that are aligned with national standards for content.

    American Mathematical Society –The Society’s programs and services for its members and the global mathematical community includes many facets. AMS provides professional programs; publications; meetings and conferences; support for young scholars programs; tools such as MRef for researchers and authors; and a Public Awareness Office that provides resources to members, students, teachers, the media, and the general public.

    Mathematical Imagery Visit amazing galleries that express math in the design of Gothic cathedrals, Rose windows, oriental rugs, mosaics and tiles to name a few. Explore geometric forms that were fundamental to the cubists and many abstract expressionists. See the math in tessellations, deformations, reflections, Platonic solids, spirals, symmetry, and the hyperbolic plane. )

    Discover Engineering  – This organization coalition of volunteer engineer professionals works together to celebrate engineering and give students hands-on experiences with engineering.

    PHET- Explore these very best of Interactive Science Simulations they are fun, interactive, research-based simulations of physical phenomena from the PhET™ project at the University of Colorado.

    The Center for K12 STEM Education – The K-12 STEM education programs work with articulated science and math learning standards, the new Common Core standards and emerging standards in engineering, technology and other disciplines. This outreach from the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering engage teachers directly in STEM focused programs and initiatives.

    Girlstart- This is an organization that has a mission to empower girls in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. This link brings educators to a set of online modules that have been created to get girls involved in STEM activities.
