Description:

Located in Chicago's Hyde Park, the Museum of Science & Industry is housed in the Palace of Fine Arts, the one remaining structure from the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893. Within these walls, visitors can learn about coal mining in southern Illinois as well as the human body. Through this website, visitors can take advantage of the museum's online offerings that are specifically designed to assist educators. For example, the What's New area allows visitors to take advantage of free classroom activities and hands-on experiments in Summer Brain Games. Moving along, the Featured Classroom Activities area contains activities that are designed to help students learn how to build a wind turbine or learn how to craft an electric motor. All told, there are over two dozen activities here, including Cookie Mining and a step-by-step tutorial on how to make slime.
