NSTA's current membership of more than 53,000 includes science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives, and others involved in and committed to science education.
- NOAA Ocean Explorer is an educational Internet offering for all who wish to learn about, discover, and virtually explore the ocean realm. It provides public access to current information on a series of NOAA scientific and educational explorations and activities in the marine environment. The site provides a platform to follow explorations in near real-time, learn about exploration technologies, observe remote marine flora and fauna in the colorful multimedia gallery, read about NOAA’s 200-year history of ocean exploration, and discover additional NOAA resources in a virtual library.
- The Journey North Program (www.learner.org/jnorth/index.html) promotes the collection of student data through the tracking of a dozen migratory species every spring, including for example, the monarch butterfly and the whooping crane. One element of inquiry is that students collect real data through observation of the migration of species in North America, and post “the date of sighting” observations on the website for other students and teachers around the country to see.
- The JASON Project (www.jasonproject.org/) is an interactive, online-learning project that offers teachers and students multi-media experiences to enhance the teaching and learning of science, math, technology, and associated disciplines. Scientists engage in on-going research projects that encourage students to follow scientists’ progress as they make online journal entries during an expedition to one of the many natural wonders.
- Shockwave™ Activities create real-time correlations between scientific theories and applications that help students visualize, experiment, and interact with many of the major concepts in science.
- Science Toys: Make toys at home with common household materials, often in only a few minutes, that demonstrate fascinating scientific principles.
