This section provides learners with good resources for exploring
the world and for learning about science. The websites are
organized into eight sections from the National Science Education
The Science test of the Certificate of General Educational Development (GED) uses these sections to organize its test questions.
First, take a look at some interesting websites that will
get you started on this learning adventure:
Concepts and Processes This section gives us the big picture of scientific
ideas. We learn about the systems and processes of the natural
world. Find out about the jet stream, evolution, and the visual
as Inquiry Scientific inquiry means asking questions, planning
investigations, gathering data, and thinking critically. Scientists
use inquiry to investigate the universe. Try these resources
to practice inquiry. Also, learn about Antarctica, cloning,
mountain gorillas, or Rift Valley Fever!
Science Learn about energy, the water cycle, Earths
elements, and the science of baseball, hockey, and skateboards.
Physical science explores energy, motion, force, light, heat,
electricity, and properties of matter.
Science Learn about prairies, animals, plants, and biomes.
Life science explores habitats, ecosystems, and the life cycles
of plants and animals.
and Space Science Do you wonder about volcanoes, planets, and tsunamis?
Earth and space science explores the Earth system, the solar
system, Earths history, and the weather.
and Technology Find out how satellites help us understand our world.
These websites show connections between the natural world
(science) and things designed by humans (technology).
