Science Buddies: Are you looking for ideas for a great  science fair project? Do you need help designing and conducting experiments? Science buddies offers ‘starter kits’ to help get your research started. Science buddies will pair you with a high school mentor and a science or engineering professional. Consider submitting your project to the California State fair and national science fairs sponsored by Intel or the Discovery Channel.

Genetic Science Learning Center: An excellent educational resource that explains basic genetics concepts and how they relate to our lives. Learn how to build a DNA or cell model and find gene and blood types. This site was developed and is maintained by the Genetic Science Learning Center at the University of Utah.

Genomic Revolution: This site provides a colorful introduction to the genomic revolution.  Learn the history and facts behind the genetics revolution. The site was developed and is maintained by the American Museum of Natural History.

Gene School 99: A comprehensive overview of the science and applications of modern genetics. Includes photographs, games and experiments you can try at home. The materials on this site were developed by high school students for ThinkQuest.

DNA From the Beginning: The basics of DNA, genes and heredity explained using animations, images, video interviews, biographies and more. Developed and maintained by the Dolan DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Labs.

I Can Do That!: Find fun facts about DNA, RNA, cells, proteins and cloning. The site was developed and is maintained by EurekaScience.

EBI Introduction to Biology: A no nonsense introduction to molecular biology with an emphasis on genomics and bioinformatics. The site is intended for students with an interest in science but without a background in biology. The site was developed and is maintained by the European Bioinformatics Institute.

DNA Interactive: An award willing interactive exploration of genetics. This site is developed and maintained by the Dolan DNA Learning Center at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory.

Human Genome Project Education Kit: Download free educational computer programs from the Human Genome Project.

NCBI Science Primer: Learn advanced biology concepts from genome mapping to microarrays and more. The site was developed and is maintained by the National Center for Biotechnology Information.

YouSTEM for San Francisco Bay Area: Local opportunities for K-12 students in Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math.
