The German Tutor
Creating a collection of interactive German lessons for both English and Spanish speakers won this high-school team a second place prize. The site is organized so that it can be used sequentially as a complete introduction to German, or randomly, jumping to specific units as you need them. To study the units in sequence, simply follow the left-hand menu from Diagnosis to Lessons. For a quick overview of German pronunciation and grammar, try the “compressed tutorial” German on the Go!
Of Mind and Matter: The Mystery of the Human Brain
Three young men from Connecticut won the high-school grand prize with this biology entry about the human brain. Starting with anatomy and function, and progressing to disorders and psychology, this site is well-written, has a great design and is peppered with interactivity. My favorite clicks are found in Interact, which provides a complete list of all the site’s quizzes, polls, and rich-media illustrations and games.
