This is a compilation of information about women in science . There are more than 125 women from our scientific past documented in biographies and photographs. A bonus is the inclusion of the reference list of books and articles used to develop this site.


Discussion forums, information on starting a high-tech company, and an online science journal are available on this site, designed to help users interact with colleagues.

"One of the world's preeminent scientific and educational institutions," the American Museum of Natural History offers here exhibits and information on many aspects of natural history, as well as museum information, news, and current research.

This is a comprehensive look, in text and photo, at the lands and people of the Arctic Circle using three themes: natural resources, history and culture, and social equity and environmental justice. You'll find very interesting information on indigenous peoples and their situations in the face of natural resource exploration.

A great site! Enables people to ask scientific questions, and participate in discussion through e-mail with Dr. Science. Nominated as "Cool Site of the Year" by People Magazine OnLine and InFinet!

Crawl through Orkin's site and get basic and lifestage information on rodents, as well as termites, roaches, and other insects. By then you'll probably be favorably disposed to calling for the free inspection they offer.

A middle school science teacher in Oakland, California, offers this site containing original lesson plans, links to science and education sources, input by other teachers about their successful attempts at motivation, a number of sources on Ebonics and other urban education issues, and more.

A great starting point for exploring this widely debated topic. As the site puts it: "Cold fusion is important because even if there is only 1/10 of 1% possibility of its reality...it must be investigated."

Scientific video archives are available at this site, created by the Centre for Advanced Studies, Research, and Development in Sardinia.

This excellent site, attractive and well organized, offers comprehensive information on the geography, plants, animals, and people of the desert, especially the desert of the American Southwest. Published online monthly with back issues archived, DesertUSA has features, desert adventures (including park, climbing, and camping information), desert talk, a trading post, and more. Great stuff!

This multimedia tour of a permanent dinosaur exhibit at Honolulu Community College features images and audio clips. A small but interesting exhibit.

This is a searchable site with collectibles, articles, discussions, a picture gallery, and links. One of the most interesting features is the Dinosaur Omnipedia, which has dictionary definitions, pronunciations, translations, anatomy, type terms, and maps!

The online version of the popular educational cable channel features a wealth of information as well as details on its TV counterpart's broadcast schedule. A rich resource.

This site provides teachers with ways to increase their effectiveness with lessons, activities, articles, and the highlighting of 13 outstanding sites every month.

The Explorit Science Center is a hands-on science museum in California. Their page contains current news events, information on science accomplishments in history for each month, quizzes, and challenges. There are plenty of links too.

This piece of NOVA Online is just too good to miss. Chuck Yeager flew the X-1 to break the sound barrier for the first time on October 14, 1947. Here you can read and listen to his words and those of other men vital to that effort and get a feel for what it was really like to step (or fly) into the unknown. (While you’re here, check out a lot of other great NOVA stuff too!)
