Serendip is a website hosted at Bryn Mawr College with additional support from HHMI that is constantly evolving in response to the suggestions and the needs of the “visitors,” 99% of whom are not associated with the college. The content is organized into discrete sections, each section hosting a specific topic ranging from brain and behavior to digital humanities. To date there are over 30,000 pages of student essays, interactive games, lab exercises, lecture notes, book reviews, art exhibits, course descriptions, class syllabi, an a link to the college's "Teaching and Learning in Higher Education," a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal.
There are no specific goals listed on the site beyond, play, learn, enjoy, and understand that you never know where you may find something new. The site aims to provide experience that may lead to new insights.
Target Student Population:
High school through college.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
None in general although specific parts of the site may work better with some background in the relevant science.
