The Why Files: Nothing Light About Lightning reveals all about lightning: how it is formed, the connection between lightning and thunder, the dangers of lightning, where you are safe in a lightning storm, and why a person struck by lightning suffers such long-lasting injuries. Graphs, pictures, and diagrams present various facts about lightning. (6/21/14 10:04)


STEM Sheets Customizable worksheets and flash cards for math and science. These worksheets are a great way to practice basic math/science skills. Customize the number of problems, difficulty, and more. (5/30/14 08:00)


Destroy the Castle The trebuchet was one of the most devastating weapons of the Middle Ages. During medieval sieges, this destruction machine crushed castle walls. Using trial and error, medieval engineers adjusted the trebuchet to make sure its missile hit the castle wall—and destroyed it. NOVA's science game, "Destroy the Castle," is very much like the real thing. There are five elements you can adjust in your trebuchet: stone ball weight, sling length, counterweight design, distance from the castle, and whether to add wheels. (5/23/14 09:55)


Gridzzly is a simple tool for anyone who uses grid, graph, or ruled paper. Fine-tune the pattern you need for printing: choose the shape (dots, lines, squares, or hexagons), move the slider to adjust the spacing, and print. The ruler at the top helps with the sizing. (3/29/14 10:37) 


Darwin, A Naturalist’s Voyage is a virtual tour of Charles Darwin’s nearly five-year journey on the Beagle. The tour has 14 segments chronicling Darwin’s voyage from start to finish. Throughout the tour, viewers will see sketches from the journey, hear readings from Darwin’s journals and learn about the journey as a whole. Available in English, Spanish, and French. (3/21/14 11:21)


Charles Darwin’s Library is a digital edition and virtual reconstruction of the surviving books owned by Charles Darwin. This BHL special collection draws on original copies and surrogates from other libraries. It also provides full transcriptions of his annotations and marks. (3/21/14 11:01)


Energy in a High Tech World: Oil Refining shows how crude oil is transformed into its many useable products. A video shows how petroleum was formed and how energy comes from the petroleum. An interactive illustrates how crude oil is distilled into various products by superheating. Find out how each product is used at the end of all the refining. (2/28/14 17:40)


At My Science Box you'll find complete, scaffolded lesson plans to teach a 4-6 week middle school science unit through activities, projects, and field trips. Every lesson has been kid-tested. Create a printable version of any lesson plan or even a whole teaching box. (2/22/14 10:39)


Warnings from the Ice  Your team has been assigned to drill ice cores 40 km (25 mi) from base camp. You've just completed a week of survival training and know that it's essential to bring individual survival packs in case of an emergency situation. Freak storms can happen without warning. You might need to wait out a storm that prevents you from moving to safety, and rescue teams from reaching you. Your team must decide which items to put in the packs so that each team member could survive in severe weather for 24 hours. Choose carefully—your life might depend on it! (1/17/14 10:46)


The BioDigital HumanTM is a virtual 3D body that brings to life thousands of medically accurate anatomy objects and health conditions in an interactive Web-based platform. (1/17/14 10:34)


Sciencenter activities are designed to support your school's science education curriculum and can be used either in conjunction with a museum visit or as stand-alone classroom activities: Climate Change Education Resources, Nanoscale Informal Science Education Network (NISE Net) Resources, Chemistry Experiments (1/17/14 10:24)
