What is it?
Science NetLinks is a premier K-12 science education resource produced by the American Association for the Advancement of Science. At Science NetLinks, you’ll find teaching tools, interactives, podcasts, and hands-on activities, and all of it is free!
Who is it for?
Science NetLinks provides K-12 teachers, students, and families with quality resources for teaching and learning science.
How do I use it?
All of the resources are Internet based and free to everyone. Lessons and activities can be printed or used online. Many of the interactives, esheets, and tools work great on an interactive white board or in a computer lab. All of the resources are designed to be delivered in a variety of formats and classroom settings.
Science NetLinks provides educators with tons of fun and engaging science lesson ideas for K-12 students. These lessons are designed for students to learn science concepts from doing science rather than learning passively. Your students can learn how to make observations by using their senses, middle school students can investigate the chemical reactions that cause combustion, high school students can use engineering design and historical perspective to explore how a nuclear accident can affect a biological system, and more! New lesson plan ideas are constantly being added.
Science Tools– Tools provide descriptions of online resources developed by either AAAS or other organizations. Tools fall into four categories—hands-on activities, interactives, teaching aids, or websites— and include tips to integrate them into your classroom.
Collections– Collections are groupings of lessons, tools, science updates, and other resources relating to a single topic.
Afterschool– Afterschool resources offer informal, often hands-on, science activities. Each one includes a facilitator page as well as online and printable pages for kids.
