Title: NOVA: scienceNOW

Description: Since 2005, NOVA scienceNOW has produced programs for their website which are hour-long episodes that feature "four fast-paced, timely science and technology stories, including a profile piece on an intriguing personality in the field." There are so many areas of science to explore on the site that visitors will have a hard time choosing where to start. The "Interactives" tab in the middle of the page has a quiz on identifying bird songs, as well as an exercise to explore options for storing carbon dioxide. The tab "Watch Online", which is next to the "Interactives" tab, has several stories featured, plus an archive that visitors can explore. Some of the stories include "Algae Fuel", "Earthquakes in the Midwest", and a profile on Sang-Mook Lee, a geophysicist paralyzed from the neck down. Visitors will find the "Teachers" section in the menu near the top of the page, to be very helpful in finding lessons that can be used in conjunction with the scienceNOW programs.
