TryScience.org is your gateway to experience the excitement of contemporary science and technology
through on and offline interactivity with science and technology centers worldwide. Science is exciting,
and it's for everyone! That's why TryScience and over 400 science centers worldwide invite you to
investigate, discover, and try science yourself.

TryScience is brought to you through a partnership between IBM Corporation, the New York Hall of
Science (NYHOS), the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), and science centers
worldwide.

New interactive content is added regularly to these areas:

Adventure: Thematic interactive experience
Experiments: Hands-on (offline) activities with an online component
Field Trips: Interactive science center features, plus a science center locator
Curious?: Short polls and activities based on a hot topic question, plus related news links
Live Cams: Live views from webcams at science and technology centers worldwide

Description

The 82 experiments, originally offered -- and for a time still available -- in loose-leaf binders
(kits) for cost of mailing, are meant to enhance science curricula in grades 4 through 8. The
experiments use readily available materials and are simple to perform. Approximately
60,000 "kits" (over 14,000 in the binder format) describing the experiments have been
distributed nationwide since the program was instituted.

The Fund has converted the kits to electronic format. You can now download them, print
them out, and copy them for your students. We simply ask that you register using a simple
registration form before downloading the files, and that you fill out a "report card" after
evaluating or using an experiment so that the Fund can measure the effectiveness of the
Science Teaching Experiment program.

http://www.jason.org/public/home.aspx
The power of great explorers and great events to fire students’ imaginations was the driving
force behind JASON’s founding by Dr. Robert D. Ballard, soon after his discovery of RMS
Titanic. In the wake of that historic event, JASON pioneered educational telepresence to
create a “being there” experience for students to work side by side with scientists and
researchers on exciting, real-world missions.

Telepresence is now embedded in JASON’s inquiry-based curriculum through videos,
podcasts, Web casts, live chat sessions, and interactive computer simulations—all aligned to
national science standards and seamlessly integrated into the framework of a four-color,
magazine-style print curriculum.
