Fistful of Favorites

Note: All of this month's "Favorites" were entries in the ThinkQuest competition. Groups of students from around the world collaborated to produce online educational tools. These are our "favorites" of the many worthy creations.

MusicNet
Music education may never be the same. This student-developed website is "dedicated to the spread of Music Education." You'll find an interactive encyclopedia, contests, games, and tips from inside the music profession.

Interactive Tour of the Cell
Take an interactive tour of the cell. Explore the "Virtual Cell." Browse the gallery of cells. Microbiology can be fascinating!

Chernobyl: A Nuclear Disaster
Ten years later, the explosion at the Chernobyl nuclear power station remains the worst nuclear accident ever. Hopefully, scientists worldwide have learned lessons from it, like the ones covered in this website. Hopefully, Chernobyl's history will never repeat itself.

Raiders of the Lost Art
Be an archeologist, or a "raider of the lost art," by exploring four cultures and "putting the pieces back together." Use artifacts and other aspects of the cultures to make new discoveries about life in other places at other times.

The Online Planetarium Show
Everybody loves a visit to a planetarium! Now, you can visit one online. Take a guided tour of the interactive planetarium program called "Hubble: From Here To Eternity." You'll see spectacular images captured by the Hubble Space Telescope.

Investing for Kids
Someone once said that you have to have money to make money. They were talking about investing. It's never too early for kids to learn the value of wisely investing their money.
