The Exploratorium's website is a vast resource for informal learning and for science teaching as well. It offers hundreds of hands-on activities, with many conveniently listed by topic (go to "Educate," then "Hands-on Activities) and loads of cool webcasts, especially in astronomy, easily accessed from the homepage. The "Explore" and "Educate" tabs across the top of the homepage offer lots of features, ranging from dissection of a cow's eye to text and vivid images on global climate change. There's so much on this site that it's a bit difficult to browse and see it all. Luckily you can search, and if, for instance, you look under "DNA paper", you can see an annotated version of the Crick & Watson DNA structure paper and read about the controversy about the role of Rosalind Franklin. Besides all this great material, the design is superb. Go visit, and often
