Science Animations: Movies & Interactive Tutorial Links

The use of a well-placed animation in a lecture can help illuminate any number of important concepts in the sciences. Educators seeking high-quality animations need look no further than this very useful site created by staff members at North Harris Community College. The animations are divided into a number of topics, including plants, ecology, astronomy, geology, anatomy, and biology. Each section contains links to a host of fascinating and helpful animations from institutions like Florida State University, Cambridge University Press, the University of Nebraska, and the University of Alberta. As a note, the astronomy and physics areas are particularly strong, and visitors would do well to take a look at the lunar and planetary time-lapse animations offered up by Antonio Cidadão.

  2. First of all I would like to say excellent blog!

    I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thank you!

    having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.

    are discussing on the net. You actually realize how
    to bring a problem to light and make it important. More people need to look
