In response to Dan Meyer’s Where is Your List?, I put together this collection of science related animations, movies, and interactive modules. This list features resources I find valuable and have used either in a PowerPoint presentation or as a stand alone example. I still like to keep science real, but sometimes an animation can bring a topic to life in ways a text or lecture can not.
