Some great resources for students

The Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation - The Lemelson Center is a great resource that explores invention and innovation in history, the story behind great inventions and the site provides resources and ideas to encourage inventive creativity in young people. I found the site fascinating and fun.

iWrite - iWrite, from, is a great resource for writing for students. It includes tips, ideas, grammar help and more. It is very easy to navigate also. A must for any student who has to write.

Great Source has a huge variety of resources for students, in every subject and topic area, including math, science, reading, writing, test prep, and technology.

Fresh Brain - "At the core of FreshBrain is an open and free web site that provides teens with the opportunity to explore, engage, and create through activities and projects. FreshBrain takes advantage of the latest technologies, such as web conferencing and social networking, to provide a very progressive environment where teens can complete activities and work together on projects. This experience is enhanced with Advisors, available to support and mentor teens who are working on projects, with the intention of increasing the likelihood of success. In addition, FreshBrain provides teens with tools and training in the latest technologies to complete these projects."

Fresh Brain is a great resource and very easy to use. The technology products and resources help students build 21st Century Skills and learn how to use Web 2.0 technologies. These skills will be very important to them in college and in careers.
