Virtual Encyclopedia to Aid Students' Learning of Science
Phil Myers, (firstname.lastname@example.org), LSA - Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, leads a team that has created the "Animal Diversity Web" (ADW). This website serves as a "virtual encyclopedia" and resource for teaching by inquiry. It provides photos, sounds, and detailed information about thousands of animal species. It is also a cornerstone of a project to improve teaching science to 5th and 6th graders in Michigan. The website is continually updated with entries authored by faculty and students. The Animal Diversity Web can be found at http://animaldiversity.ummz.umich.edu/.
