howtosmile.orgThe online catalog at howtosmile.org contains over 3,500 of the very best science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) activities on the web. The activities are completely free and drawn from many well-known sources including leading science museums, professional scientific organizations, US federal agencies, and universities. Based at University of California, Berkeley Lawrence Hall of Science and initially funded by the National Science Foundation, howtosmile.org lets educators quickly search across the entire collection by topic, age of the learner, cost of materials, and many other characteristics, to find the perfect activity for their class, camp, or home-based learning experience.Informal Educators (Science Museums), Formal Educators, Homeschoolers
