Title: California Academy of Sciences: Discover Science
Url: http://www.calacademy.org/explore-science/
Publisher: California Academy of Sciences.
Description: The California Academy of Sciences has an ambitious outreach program designed to provide information on its work to those interested in the sciences. This site contains three sections with videos, podcasts, interviews, and blog posts about the Academy's various projects. The sections include Science Heroes and Science Today, and the organization of the site makes it a snap to browse around. In the Science Today area, visitors can look over daily top stories and weekly video features such as Virus Mutations, Shrinking Sheep, and Facial Expressions. Moving on, the Science Heroes area features animal caregivers, scientists, and suppliers who work for the Academy. Visitors shouldn't miss the profiles of Brian Fisher ("The Ant Guy") and John E. McCosker ("Shark Charmer"). Finally, the site is rounded out by the Academy Blogs, which include pieces on spotted owls and California habitats.
