Website Review: Edheads

The EDHEADS website provides a wealth of interactive educational resources for all ages.
The website contains a wide range of STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) activities.
Resources for elementary and middle school youth include Simple Machines, The Compound Machine, Weather, and Design a Cell Phone.
Resources for middle and high school youth include Trauma, Deep Brain Stimulation, Virtual Knee Surgery, Choose the Prosthetic, Virtual Hip Replacement, Virtual Hip Resurfacing, and Aortic Aneurysm Surgery.
Resources for high school students include Sickle Cell DNA, Crash Scene, Stem Cell Transplant, Stem Cell Heart Repair, and Nanoparticles and Brain Tumors.
The Teacher Resources section encourages educators to participate by exploring materials teachers have created to go with the interactives as well as the opportunity to share ideas.
Librarians will find these high-quality interactives to be popular with both students and teachers. The online activities are attractive, engaging, and educational.
