National Science Foundation Resource
The NSF Learning360 Facebook page, which will be moderated (guarded!) by a teacher to ensure only good, useful stuff gets posted, will highlight one item a day—usually a short video—for you to check out. It’ll include links for how to find more videos like this. Please “like” it, and watch and read the posts!
(Not a Facebook user? No worries! There’s an option to receive updates via email: go to http://feedburner.google.com/fb/a/mailverify?uri=NSFLearning360.)
