    "Science Friday is a weekly Science talk show, broadcast live over public radio stations nationwide from 2-4pm Eastern time as part of NPR's 'Talk of the Nation' programming. Each week, we focus on Science topics that are in the news and try to bring an educated, balanced discussion to bear on the scientific issues at hand. Panels of expert guests join Science Friday's host, Ira Flatow, a veteran Science journalist, to discuss Science - and to take questions from listeners during the call-in portion of the program."

Science-Based Google Maps | KQED QUEST - 0 views

  •  
    Google Maps is an obvious fit in social studies lessons. But it's not always an obvious fit in science lessons. Last week during one of the New Hampshire Google Apps Bootcamps Alice Barr shared a good collection of Google Maps uses in science. KQED Quest has a collection of six examples of science based Google Maps. The collection includes examples of use in environmental science and geology lessons.

SciStarter - 4 views

  •  
    SciStarter will bring together the millions of citizen scientists in the world; the thousands of potential projects offered by researchers, organizations, and companies; and the resources, products, and services that enable citizens to pursue and enjoy these activities. We aim to:  Enable and encourage people to learn about, participate in, and contribute to science through both informal recreational activities and formal research efforts. Inspire greater appreciation and promote a better understanding of science and technology among the general public. Create a shared space where scientists can talk with citizens interested in working on or learning about their research projects. Satisfy the popular urge to tinker, build, and explore by making it simple and fun for people-singles, parents, grandparents, kids-to jump in and get their hands dirty with science.

Anybody can learn | Code.org - 2 views

  •  
    Code.org is a non-profit dedicated to expanding participation in computer science education by making it available in more schools, and increasing participation by women and underrepresented students of color. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer programming. We believe computer science should be part of the core curriculum in education, alongside other science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses, such as biology, physics, chemistry and algebra.

Citizen Scientists Making Incredible Discoveries - NASA Science - 3 views

  • "Not only are people better than computers at detecting the subtleties that differentiate galaxies, they can do things computers can't do, like spot things that just look interesting,"
  • And the Zooniverse team has proven that the Zooites' classifications are as good as those by professional astronomers. "Their contributions are extremely important," says Lintott. "They're helping us learn how galaxies form and evolve. And they take their work seriously." But that doesn't prevent them from bringing a sense of adventure and just sheer fun to the research.
  •  
    nd now you can be the one to find it, thanks to Zooniverse, a unique citizen science website. Zooniverse volunteers, who call themselves "Zooites," are working on a project called Galaxy Zoo, classifying distant galaxies imaged by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope.

Humanline.com: Images of art, history and science for educational and commercial licensing - 4 views

  •  
    Humanline is an image library of arts, history and science. We license images for both educational and commercial use and all of our content is immediately downloadable and up to the highest technical and legal standards. That's how we think the 21st century image libraries should look like. But we are not a typical commercial library. We believe that images of art, history and science, especially those from the public domain, should be free for educational use. That's why we have taken this - a bit more difficult but more satisfying - way of development. Just because we think it's the right way and it is worth the technical and all other possible difficulties.

Solve for X - 1 views

  •  
    Solve For X is a place to hear about and discuss radical technology ideas for solving global problems. Radical in the sense that the solutions could help millions or billions of people. Radical in the sense that the audacity of the proposals makes them sound like science fiction. And radical in the sense that there is some real technology breakthrough on the horizon indicating that these ideas could really be brought to life.
