The Franklin Institute

A terrific website on the history of American science and invention, packed with online exhibits, biographies, and lesson plans. "Scientists and the Institute: Making their Cases" includes stories searchable by either the scientist or the invention that made them famous. The "Pieces of Science" section has the curricula for both elementary and secondary school teachers, as well as a brief history of subjects ranging from genetic clones and Franklin's lightning rod to Joseph Priestley's physics projects and the Grumman Lunar Module.
