Exploratorium

The well-organized site from San Francisco’s Exploratorium investigates everything from skateboard engineering to cookie subduction (i.e., using an Oreo cookie to demonstrate what happens when continental and oceanic plates shift) It is heavily science focused and follows the scientific method closely. Upper elementary and up.

Science Friday

 

Science Friday partners with educators and scientists to create free STEM activities, lessons, and resources for all learners.

Maker Ed

MakerEd has compiled an archive of activities with a robust pedagogical and curricular foundation. It is easy to search and use, but dense with academic language. Elementary teachers and parents.

Make Code

To support learning at home during COVID-19 school closures, the MakeCode team is offering daily live streaming tutorial sessions.

Microsoft’s MakeCode program includes both physical computing with the Micro Bit and virtual coding and app development. Easy to use with limitless possibilities, it’s a great block coding interface. It even has Minecraft coding! Upper elementary through middle school.

ScratchEd

No list would be complete without this perennial favorite. Now in partnership with Harvard Graduate School of Education, the site includes an archive of activities for Scratch that includes 323 math activities, 302 visual arts ones, plus examples and stories to help build classroom community and support curricular content. Elementary through middle school.

Algodoo

While not technically a web tool, this free download allows students to create, alter, and run engineering simulations. Students can change gravity, add gears, planes, ropes, and wheels to see how they will interact —even add drag and friction! This is a very fun tool all around, but especially when thinking about simple machines. It would fit really well with adventure or chain reaction novels. Middle school and up.

Google Experiments

This archive of experiments is a rabbit hole of awesome fun things. Curated into collections, the experiments are easy to use and share, require little to no equipment, and are deeply entertaining with a firm curricular foundation. I particularly recommend the Arts and Culture collection. Middle school and up.
