REVIEW
The NSF Multimedia Gallery is a rich resource for science teachers looking to enrich their science curriculum. The multimedia offerings cover such topics as astronomy and space, biology, Artic and Antarctic, computing, earth and environment, nanoscience, and more. Users can take a look at a fossil that might represent the first vertebrate to emerge from the ancient seas, learn how scientists are turning forest-industry waste into fuel and other products, view a video about natures superglue produced by aquatic bacteria or learn about the most efficient ways to move in the water by viewing Teaching Robots to Swim. This is a site you will want to bookmark and return to often.
