Science Website Reviews
This is a good, generic assignment for some
point in the curriculum where you expect that you will run across a lot
of information on the web. For example, I assigned this project during
the genetics section since there are a number of gene banks/databases on
the web as well as tutorials, interactive exercises, etc. Students
are as good about finding these things as I am, and there are a lot more
of them than me!
Your job is to search the
internet and find a website that deals with [subject area].
Please answer the following questions:
What is the URL of the site (http://....)
and the name of the site.
How accurately are these scientific concepts
How might you use this site as a learner?
What can you do with it?
What are the main strengths of this site?
The format of the review is up to you so long
as all of the above items are addressed. We will look at the top
