Symphony of Science

Two things that go beautifully together: Music and Science.  These songs make music out of actual scientists to teach about science.  AND... they are catchy enough to have a 10 year old memorize them.


NASA has a lot of wonderful resources for Students and Educators.  It's image and video gallery can give a window into the universe that is incomparable.  Additionally, they have Science Casts with fun titles like "Fried Planets" and "Why Curiosity Matters."
