In the 'Explorers' portion of this site you will see the 'Selected by Science Educators - SciLinks from NSTA' label, which we are proud to display as recognition by the National Science Teachers Association of the work we have put into the biographies (much like the effort we put into all aspects of the site).

Some notes about the design of this site

This site has been designed to function well at a number of lower screen resolutions, but is best if viewed at 1024 x 768 or higher. We are currently reconstructing much of the site, changing old static pages into dynamically served pages that better meet the information needs of our visitors. Since this requires the construction of a number of inter-linked databases as well as style sheets and new page structures, the may be a little construction mess from time to time in some areas of our site. However, we are confident that the results will be worth it.
