NACSE and its collaborators are developing the following curriculum and tools which are available for educational uses.
- Informal Science Activities: For the Science Enrichment Program, we have developed a set of informal science education labs in the areas of K-8 life science, earth science, and physical science. All of these labs are are available on-line.
- Biology Resources: Websites with useful projects and activities for learning more about biological sciences - for all ages.
- LichenLand: Want to learn more about Lichens and how to identify them? Check out this tool!
- SHAPES: Students of all ages are motivated to learn to think and work in 3D. They see it in movies such as The Incredibles and Chicken Little. They see it in television shows such as Max Steel and Jimmy Neutron. They see it in their video games. It is an integral part of their world. It makes sense, then, that they can be taught the essence of 3D graphics by letting them create their own 3D scenes. The program Shapes, downloadable here, allows kids of all ages to create their own 3D scenes that are interesting and compelling. By gently and subtly weaving Cartesian coordinates throughout the program, the kids learn about X, Y, and Z without even knowing they are learning it. This program was developed by Mike Bailey.
- ChromaDepth: Prof. Mike Bailey has adapted a 3D visualization technique called ChromaDepth for use in Scientific Visualization. He has placed many of his images on-line. In addition, students can create their own pictures using gel markers, black paper, and ChromaDepth glasses.
