Sparticl is a new web and mobile service for teens, a collection of the very best the web has to offer in science, technology, engineering, and math or STEM. Sparticl includes answers to science questions, images, videos, games, and hands-on activities, all curated by a team of experts. But it's also a place where teens play a critical part – ranking content, sharing it, and recommending new content, all the while earning points and badges. Sparticl is created by the award-winning National Productions division of Twin Cities Public Television, and is made possible with the generous support of 3M.
Brilliant is one way to keep your science and math wiz kids regularly engaged and challenged. Students receive challenge problems each week that they complete and then compare against their peers all over the world. They can see where they match up against others based on country and age, and share strategies with others students. The site also hosts competitions involving game theory, writing algorithms, and other fun shenanigans.
Mathtrain.TV is a free educational "kids teaching kids" project from Mr. Marcos & his students at Lincoln Middle School in Santa Monica, CA.
