SciberMonkey has been created by the Biochemical Society. It aims to support the teaching and learning of science for 5-14 year olds.
SciberMonkey has been created to trawl through search engine results and find the best information from the many good teaching resources already available, for free, on the internet. It’s a web portal containing the best websites, mapped against key themes and topics found in almost all science curricula. Results can be further refined by selecting the key words for each topic.
Each entry in the portal has been quality assured by science teachers.
The site has been designed to support both teachers and students. Children can use the website inside and outside the classroom through the pupils’ section. They can access appropriate resources by choosing the age group that applies to them. For each topic they can find a variety of different types of resources – from reading and revision materials to animations and games – all helping them get to grips with the subject.
The teachers’ section contains additional ‘teacher-only’ resources, including practical experiments, worksheets and other activities and visuals for use in the classroom.
SciberMonkey can provide a quick, easy and reliable way for pupils and teachers alike to access the best science websites on the internet for homework, revision and teaching aids. Well worth experimenting with, (fairly of course!)
