Title: Academy of Natural Sciences PDF
Url: http://www.ansp.org/
Publisher: Academy of Natural Sciences of Philadelphia.
Description: Like many great institutions in Philadelphia, the Academy of Natural Sciences has a long and storied history. The Academy was started in 1812, and in no time at all, the members of this institution were making expeditions to all corners of the globe. Today, they still sponsor such scientific expeditions, and their website is a great way to learn about their educational outreach activities as well as their museum. As with many institutions in this vein, the Academy's online exhibits are rather compelling, and visitors can access them through the "Museum" tab from the homepage. Exhibits include a photographic tour of Thomas Jefferson's famed fossil collection and an overview of the work of Joseph Leidy, a noted 19th century paleontologist and anatomist. If that wasn't enough, the "Scientific Research" area of the site provides copious amounts of printed literature (including reports and briefs) based on research done at the Academy. Overall, the site will be of great use to the generally curious and to those working in science education and instruction.
