This website for the Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE) acts as a respository for the essays of the SPORE winners, which are published each month in Science. The SPORE award was established to encourage innovation and excellence in education, as well as to encourage the use of high-quality on-line resources by students, teachers, and the public. The award recognizes the best, online materials in science education.
Each month, Science publishes an article by a recipient of the award, which explains the winning project. The essays in this collection range from astronomy education to the periodic table. At this point, there are 29 essays available.
Depending on the science topic you are teaching, this resource can be used to help find excellent science education sites on the Web that can be used to help enhance your curriculum.
