Succeeding With Science

I first learned about Succeding with Science from Richard Bryne and his technology blog. If you haven't checked it, it's a must see (you'll notice that I learn about a lot of things from his blog).

It is arranged by age level, but I have found the "simulations" not to match up well with the age they say it should be for. For the most part it is very simplified. I did look at one simulation for middle school students on the reproductive system and I found that to be a bit detailed for that age group. It got a bit better when I looked at the high school level activities. I was linked to LabMouse Online which was actually a bit better than I expected.

Overall this a good website if you looking for a general overview of things or you want to include it in a list of links for students to access at home.


Welcome to my little space on the web. Let me introduce myself - I am a middle and high school science teaching in New York who LOVES technology. I am always looking for the newest thing to try with my students. Like many of you I am limited by the available (and working) teachnology in my building, but I'm always trying!

I have decided to chronicle my journey into the world of science technology so that you all can join along with me. Here I will talk about various resources that I have tried or plan to try with my students. I will give you my opinions on it and look to hear yours!

I look forward from hearing from you all because we can all learn from each other!
