Who (or what) is ScienceMan?

Back in September of 1997, I was struggling to integrate technology into my science classroom. Besides learning how to use interface equipment and computers effectively, the Internet was a real challenge. How do you efficiently get students to the resources you want them to see?

I experimented with bookmarks for a while, but that just wasn't (and still isn't!) practical. So I decided to put together an internet page of annotated links that would help my students find what they needed. When a few other teachers discovered the page... well, all heck broke loose! Many teachers made suggestions on what they'd like to see on a teacher's science education page - good quality links with curriculum suggestions, software reviews to help them decide what to buy, professional development oppotunities, hardware suggestions and help... and so on! As a result, ScienceMan has evolved over the last 8 years into what you are visiting now... a real hub of science and technology information!

I often get the comment... "Where do you find the time to do all of this?" Well, teachers all know there are not enough hours in the day - but I find time for this labour of love. I am cursed with a great love for both science and computer-geek stuff, so ScienceMan is a wonderful way to express that love.

I hope you find ScienceMan useful in your classroom, or for whatever!
