Access Excellence
GRADE LEVEL: 9-12 & Professionals

Access Excellence is a "national educational program that provides high school biology teachers access to their colleagues, scientists, and critical sources of new scientific information via the World Wide Web."

The site is entirely text-based. Most pages employ good spacing and headings to break up the text.

Each page has the same text menu at the bottom, which allows users to search the site, return home, or get additional information.

Access Excellence was created by Genentech employees and science teachers. The purpose of the site is to connect science teachers so they can share ideas, strategies, and activities. Users will find areas for online discussions, updates and news, activities, and online projects. This is a great resource for high school biology and other science teachers. The site includes links to other science discipline and mathematics resources.
