In 2009, Science created the Science Prize for Online Resources in Education (SPORE) “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.” Winners of the SPORE are recognized for their exceptional science education resources, resources that are completely free to the public.
Previous SPORE winners include:
Ask a Biologist – This website is home to Dr. Biology, a character who answers questions submitted by students. Explanations are really provided by a volunteer force of more than 150 experts. Learn more here.
Science Buddies – This website guides students to science and engineering topics through a series of questions and helps them find science projects that will appeal to their interests. Learn more here. Find the Science NetLinks’ tool for this resource here.
