There is a website created by the local “The Tech” museum in San Jose targeted at teachers who need to be educated in the fundamentals of science such as the properties of matter or biotechnology. The website is straightforward and easy to understand.Also, additional website related to new programming style for Lego Robotics was added : ROBOLAB.
There are a plethora of websites to inform oneself about K-12 Edcuation, ranging from IEEE’s PET website thru California’s Science Content Standards all the way to Science Fairs held on the internet and to Silicon Valley regional efforts by companies (eg. Intel) and professional societies besides IEEE that want to ensure a steady supply of qualified engineering candidates to support the growth of local companies to non-profit foundations that desires that all children become educated properly in math, science and technology.
IEEE does not endorse any particular websites other than its PET website. It is left as an exercise and fun for the surfer to check out for him/herself the quality and information of each site.
