Science Video Portal and Interactives

Over the weekend I posted a couple of good resources (here and here) for simple science videos and animations. This afternoon I came across another good source of science videos and animations. Science Magazine's Video Portal offers dozens of videos across a variety of topics in science. Each of the videos is connected to an article that you can read online or print for classroom distribution. The Science Interactives menu contains six interactive versions of posters they have published in recent years.

Applications for Education
Unfortunately, the videos in Science Magazine's Video Portal don't have embed codes for placing them in your blog or website so you will have to just link to them. The nice thing about the videos is that each of them is connected to a print article that your students can read. The videos could be a good support material to have students view after an initial reading of the connected print article.
