School Tools: EdHeads

Nov 21, 2012

Free! EDHEADS is an Ohio-based non-profit that provides web-based simulations and experiments to teach various STEM subjects for students grades 7 through 12+. This isn't your average Bunsen burner walk-through. Activity titles -- e.g. "Aortic Aneurysm Surgery," "Virtual Hip Replacement," and "Stem Cell Heart Repair" -- read like a surgeon's schedule. If that sounds daunting for teachers, rest assured that each activity includes a teacher's guide, and the EdHeads Teacher Resource Center. The site reports that 12 million people use it every year. And for standards trolls, nearly every activity is aligned to Ohio Science Standards for grades 6-12 or National Science Standards for grades 5-12.
