Neuroscience for Kids

Rating: 5 stars
Used in Course: Used in course
Submitted by: Jennifer Wilson (Student), Nov 18, 2005
Comment: I navigated this site for a total of 96 minutes and was very pleased with the
results. This site is directed toward many age levels and could be used in the
classroom by students ranging from the elementary level to the high school
level. This site helps the user develop the key concepts in neuroscience and
employs interesting and fun ways to explore the dynamics of the field by
providing interactive experiments, charts, and illustrations. This site is
obviously designed for students at a higher reading level, as some of the
information is somewhat extensive. However, for the most part, this site could
easily be adapted for use by younger students through teacher guidance and
instruction, as it provides clear and concrete illustrations and entertaining
to help students develop the basic concepts of neuroscience. Although I did not
use this site in a classroom, I believe it could easily be adapted for use in a
classroom and could be a very useful tool that teachers could use to introduce
the basic ideas found in the field of neuroscience, which would more than likely
prompt students to want to find more infromation within the field on their own.

Technical Remarks:

This site is well organized and is very specific, breaking down topics into many
subcategories that could be focused on by the instructor if used in a
classroom. The site is easy to navigate as well. The use of color and
entertaining photos also make the site asthetically pleasing and would
definitely draw the interest of younger students who use the site.
