Technology Education



NEWTON

NEWTON, Ask a Scientist, is an online community created to enhance knowledge in the areas of science, math, and computer science. It was designed for K-12 educators and has information to increase knowledge for students and teachers too. The teachers' section of the NEWTON website offers ideas for science projects, field trip ideas, reference links, educational games, lesson plans, and an area where educators can submit content and ideas! There is also a section on the website to "Ask a Scientist" questions.
