Welcome to a new, educational Web site providing valuable information to communities interested in collecting all plastic bottles' for recycling! We invite you to browse our Web site, order any of the documents free-of-charge or contact a recycling manager listed in the Contact Your Peers section to determine if collecting all plastic bottles is right for your community. Please revisit often as we will be adding new outreach resources periodically.
Miami University's Center for Chemistry Education website contains science resources for teachers and parents.
The Chemical Heritage Foundation web site is the place to go to learn about the history of science, get links to other science histroy sites, and learn the stories of individual chemists.
This is a place to go to buy small quantities of chemicals for class experiments. It also has information about forulations (what is soap) and links to a few experiments.
Middle School science module and activities linked to NAS standards and AAAS benchmarks.
The site provides balanced information on the issues raised in the program and emphasizes the positive role the business of chemistry plays in protecting children's health.
Center Of Science and Industry (COSI) is an organization dedicated to engaging children in science and technologies--through COSI's Columbus center and through travelling outreach programs.
Buring for answers to science questions? You'll get them from the "collective cranium" of more than 800 researchers in the Mad Scientist Network, a remarkable service of Washington University Medical School.

Ohio Energy Project aims to promote an energy-educated society and to facilitate leadership, through effective partnerships with schools, businesses, government and communities.
Seven-year NIEHS-funded project at BGSU to develop interdisciplinary Environmental Heath Science (EHS) units for grades 5-9, using a Problem-Based Learning (PBL) investigation approach. Involves 120 teachers and 5400 students in northwest Ohio. Collaborators include ODE, Ohio EPA, and COSI Toldeo. Units and modules will be posted on their website.
This site is not for you. You'll find plenty of useful information here, but the site is actually designed to promote science news to media organizations. Our suggestion: Skip the middleman, and long on frequently. The site features in-depth stories from such fields as space, medicine, and the environment.
A gene is decoded, and news organizations from ABC to the BBC are all over it. But where can you find information about less flashy, but no less noteworthy breakthroughs? Try Science Daily. Each day, news is presented in a clear, concise format.
Science for Ohio distance learning website developed by Miami University, includes 51 student activities and 14 original inquiries for grades 3-8, for hands-on, inquiry-based science. Each is linked to the Ohio Proficiency Outcomes.
University of Wisconsin and Bassam Shakhashiri's web site has a number of chemistry experiments that can be done at home and a page for teachers with books of experiments.
Whether it's a contemporary science topic like Dolly the cloned sheep or an histrocial one like Leonardo da Vinci's flying inventions, London's Sceience Museum has it covered.
The SESA program was developed in 1989 when engineers from BP Chemicals and the Lima Refinery and educators from Allen County, Ohio got together to discuss concerns regarding the minimal number of high school graduates interested in pursuing math and science related careers. With the realization that an interest in science should be developed and cultivated in the early years, this group envisioned that the natural curiosity of students could be directed to help them experience the wonders of science using a hands-on approach within the elementary and middle school classrooms.

Nothing quite captures a child's attention like a good science experiment. That's why more than 400 science learning institutions contributed experiments to this site. Children and adults alike can participate virtually online or use household items offline.
Information on the Voluntary Children's Chemical Evaluation Program (VCCEP). The program is an EPA Pilot program to assess chemicals for potential effects on children. More than 35 chemical companies recently committed to conduct voluntary product evaluations on 20 chemical substances as part of the program.
For anyone in need of a clear, simple explanation of almost any technical computer term, this site can be a dream come true.
