Pressure is on for excellent STEM activities, and the library has just the thing to help! Science Online from Facts on File presents a broad range of scientific disciplines through extensive essays, videos, diagrams, definitions, biographies, and experiments, with easy searching and browsing options.
Take advantage of Science Online's many resources for experiments.
Find experiments to do in the classroom, or watch videos of experiments that are too costly or dangerous for students to do themselves. To support the science and math topics you are already covering, you can find examples of different kinds of tables and graphs that show data in meaningful ways. A Science Dictionary gives definitions of tough science terms, and a reliable unit conversion calculator is available for switching between units accurately.
Use the "Topic Centers" or the "eLearning Modules" to take advantage of groups of resources, including videos, diagrams, and timelines, centered on important categories. Ready-to-use discussion questions and quizzes for many major topics are included. It's a great place to brainstorm for activities!
Recent discoveries and developments in science and math are highlighted in the "Science in the News" in a sidebar on the right. These articles are well researched, often based directly on the scientific reports themselves, and include discussion questions to use with students about the topics presented in the article.
