American Field Guide The American Field Guide site has been retired from pbs.org and is no longer available Produced in 2001 by Oregon Public Broadcasting, American Field Guide was an early experiment in online video for PBS. A unique local-national partnership, AFG presented a curated collection of over 1400 outdoors and recreation videos, produced by nearly 30 local stations around the country. Many of the programs and videos featured on AFG are still available through local station websites. Below is a list of participating programs and stations.
Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology The Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology is a world-renowned marine research institute of the School of Ocean & Earth Science & Technology at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. Situated on Moku o Lo'e (Coconut Island) in Kane‘ohe Bay, HIMB provides excellent opportunities for tropical marine research located just 15 miles from the main campus and downtown Honolulu. HIMB offers cutting edge research facilities for faculty, students, and visiting scientists coupled with convenient access to a diverse range of marine environments. For example, Coconut Island is surrounded by 64 acres of coral reef designated by the state of Hawai‘i for research activities only as the Hawai‘i Marine Laboratory Refuge. Research at HIMB covers many disciplines of tropical marine science such as coral ecology, biogeochemistry, and evolutionary genetics.

Created by Common Sense Media with funding from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the service contains objective ratings of apps and other digital learning resources from professional reviewers, along with reviews from dozens of “Graphite Educators,” teachers who are hand-picked by Common Sense Media. Graphite provides unbiased reviews of the learning potential of apps developed for a variety of platforms. Users can search for reviews of resources by subject, grade level, cost (free, “freemium,” or paid), and type (app, game, or website).
Learning Activities ( 7 Articles ) Welcome to The GreenHouse Project - a place-based project in Northeastern North Carolina that connects schools and community in a sustainable growing program. Join us on our journey as we engage partners to align project goals with high school curriculum objectives and contribute to the local community through service learning work. ( 1 Article ) These activities came from a teacher-training workshops - Physics From the Junk Drawer - that has been offered by The Science House for several years. Many teachers have taken the workshop and have applied the activities in their own classrooms - from first grade to high school.
