Smithsonian 3D models
Smithsonian X 3D launches a set of use cases which apply various 3D capture methods to iconic collection objects, as well as scientific missions. These projects indicate that this new technology has the potential not only to support the Smithsonian mission, but to transform museum core functions. Researchers working in the field may not come back with specimens, but with 3D data documenting a site or a find. Curators and educators can use 3D data as the scaffolding to tell stories or send students on a quest of discovery. Conservators can benchmark today’s condition state of a collection item against a past state – a deviation analysis of 3D data will tell them exactly what changes have occurred. All of these uses cases are accessible through the Beta Smithsonian X 3D Explorer, as well as videos documenting the project. For many of the 3D models, raw data can be downloaded to support further inquiry and 3D printing.

Learn about the weird and wonderful stuff of extreme science
Extreme Science is the place online to find the biggest, baddest, and the best in the world of extremes and learn about the science behind what makes each the most extreme example of its kind. Here you'll find world records in natural science, including earth science and the plant and animal kingdom, as well as extreme weather records, and much more wild, weird, and out-there stuff.
You'll also find the most complete collection of science and technology information and resources available on the Internet, including resources for students working on science fair projects and teachers needing content for science lessons.
For star gazing refracting telescopes or refractor are a type of optical telescope that uses a lens as its objective to form an image.
If you are interested editing videos taken by your class/students, this may be of interest.
Below are 5 free editing tools. I personally like shotcuts (the first one).
They allow you to edit your videos before you upload them to YouTube.
The Khan Acadamy has been working hard to get allow its resources to be posted directly to your Google Classroom. This is great because it allows you to post homework quickly and easily for your students.
