    A public learning laboratory, The Exploratorium, is devoted to just that: exploring the world through science, art and human perception. Their mission is ‘to create inquiry-based experiences that transform learning worldwide’ and perhaps more importantly their vision is ‘a world where people think for themselves and can confidently ask questions, question answers, and understand the world around them’. The museum makes available a vast range of, video programmes, organised by subjects, including: Arts (532 videos), Astronomy and Space (220), Biology (331), Chemistry (97), History (35), Mathematics (19), Nature of Science (13), Perception (55), Physics (215), and Social Science (575). There is also a Websites section with over 35, 000 pages of content, which can be explored by subject too.

    Funded chiefly by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, SAPS creates opportunities for teachers and students to find out more about plants and to become more interested in plant science. The How To videos are designed to help teachers and technicians carry out a range of interesting new biology practical experiments with secondary and post-16 students. The videos are intended as quick guides through the necessary practical steps and also suggest how this can be used in the classroom. The Library offers access to a collection of over 200 images to help illustrate ecology, plant biology and plant-animal interactions. There are also links to online teaching resources, with a focus on plant science and related subjects; back issues of the printed Newsletter Osmosis, with teaching resources focusing on practical activity are available too.

    An online audiovisual library of videos, photos and sound recordings of the world’s birds. It is available to the public free of charge. Aiming to offer at least one video, photo or sound recording per species initially, the long term objective is to include material covering as many subspecies as possible and a variety of biological aspects (e.g. behaviour, feeding, breeding) for every species. The site main sections are: Explore, Upload and What’s New (i.e. new species on the site). Searching capabilities are quite decent and results can be filtered by type of material (i.e. photo, video, sound). Up-loading is free, but users need to be registered. The site also offers specially curated quizzes to test the users’ ornithological skills.

    Wildlife on webcams offers live footage of intriguing behaviours: from courtship, nesting and hatching to a view of the first weeks of a chick’s life. This unrivaled moving image material is provided by the Wildlife Trusts across the British Isles. The webcams may not be available all year-round. At present (June 2018) it includes , Peregrines nesting in Derby Cathedral, Nesting barn owls, Cumbria’s only grey seal, Welsh ospreys, Rutland’s nesting ospreys, Puffins on the island of Burhou, Scotland’s red squirrels and many more. Of particular educative value within the website is the section Species, which offers very detailed information on each specific animal or plant. For example, under Amphibians we can look at the Common Frog and find out information regarding its average length, weight and lifespan; details of conservation status, habitats and geographical distribution, and how to identify them.
