http://cast.org/ Universal Design for Learning (UDL) recognizes that every learner is unique and processes information differently. UDL is based on CAST's research related to three primary brain networks (recognition network, strategic network, and affective network) and the roles they play in understanding these differences. 
UDL provides a framework to create and implement lessons with flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments that support learning for all students.

General Science or Mixed Content Areas

Learning Science

Created by one of our coaches (George Mehler, Central Bucks) and his colleagues, this website includes a host of science tools which have been vetted by Science teachers. Tools are organized by grade and standard. Each tool is categorized by the type of tool it is (e.g. Web Interactive Lesson or Web Visual Lesson).

Laboratory Safety

Here's a great tutorial and interactive quiz on laboratory safety. When the student successfully passes the quiz they receive a certificate to show their teacher.

Exploratorium

For the educator: a wealth of activities, research, professional development. In addition, there are exhibit-related multimedia presentations

Biology/Life Sciences

Cell Biology Animation
Select a cell biology topic to see the cell structure animated. In some cases, a series of topics are linked together. Key points of the structure are clickable to get more detail.
